      WCC Communiqué on Christian Self-Understanding in Relation to Hindu Religion
      A consultation with the participation of thirty persons from
      most of the major traditions of the Christian church met at the Ecumenical
      Institute, Bossey, Switzerland, from the 12-15 October 2011 under the auspices
      of the World Council of Churches to explore the issues of Christian
      self-understanding in relation to their Hindu neighbours and to Hinduism as a
      religious tradition. The participants, who were scholars and practitioners of
      interfaith dialogue in local contexts, included church leaders and specialists
      in religions, theology, missiology, Indology as well as social and political
      scientists. They were drawn from different parts of India and from other South
      and South-East Asian countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Malaysia
      and Indonesia, where Christians and Hindus live together in significant numbers.
      The consultation was part of a series of consultations that the WCC has
      organized to explore Christian self-understandings in relation to other world
      religions - Islam, Judaism and Buddhism.
