This year we are sending you greetings once again from both of our churches, the Protestant Church in Hesse and Nassau (EKHN) and of Kurhessen-Waldeck (EKKW). We wish you a blessed Pentecost.
We are celebrating Pentecost in the first year after the pandemic, in the midst of Russia’s war against Ukraine and with our thoughts turning to people dying in the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Europe. In our thoughts and prayers, we are with all who suffer and mourn, who are fleeing, who must go beyond their borders and who are there for others.
In these difficult times, our churches are also facing new challenges. Shrinking membership and declining income demand fundamental reforms. To this end, both churches have initiated important reform processes. We want to report on this in our newsletter this year. You will find it in the download section.
May God’s Spirit strengthen our ecumenical fellowship!
