Seeking Peace: the World Council of Churches and the Korean Peninsula
World Council of Churches

The division of the Korean Peninsula and the Korean War marked the WCC since its beginnings in an era when, after the end of World War 2, the hope was that a more peaceful era would begin.

The efforts to find a response to the tragedy of division came into visible effect when, in 1984, the WCC's Commission of the Churches on International Affairs convened the founding consultation of the Tozanso Process. "At the time it was an act of prophetic courage" says the Rev. Prof. Dr Sang Chang of the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea, WCC president for Asia. During this period the Korean Christian Federation [based in the DPRK] became regular observers at WCC Assemblies. After the post-9/11 climate of dissipating possibilities for direct encounter, the WCC 10th Assembly in 2013 provided an opportunity for the wider international ecumenical community to become re-acquainted with the reality and consequences of the division of the Korean people.
