Saving the Amazon rainforest requires action by Western nations, a Surinamese bishop attending the Catholic Church's synod on the Amazon region said, charging that the people of the Amazon cannot do it by themselves. "Even if we implement all the measures against deforestation or against the polluting of the rivers," explained Bishop Karel Martinus Choennie of Paramaribo, Suriname's capital, "it would still not have an effect if (people in) the Western world — Europe, America, Japan and China — don't change their lifestyles."#

Churches should make sure that believers and the church itself are not pushed back into privacy behind church walls and away from the public space, said Urmas Viilma, The Lutheran World Federation's (LWF) Vice-President for Central Eastern Europe and Archbishop of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church which hosted the 2019 Church Leadership Consultation for Central and Eastern Europe. „A church leadership conference for Central and Eastern Europe is especially important because the churches don't have many possibilities to come together," says LWF Area Secretary for Europe, Rev. Dr Ireneusz Lukas. The region might appear to be relatively homogeneous at first sight but the situation in each of the churches and countries differs considerably, he added. #

The Augusta Victoria Hospital has provided medical services to the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Gaza for more than 70 years, with a specialization in cancer treatment.
