28 May 2017, Wittenberg, Germany: On 28 May, students of the Global Ecumenical Theological Institute 2017 (GETI'17) joined tens of thousands of Christians in attending the closing service of Kirchentag ("Church Festival") in Wittenberg, the place where the Reformation began 500 years ago. With a peak temperature of 33 degrees Celsius, it was a demanding but joyful experience. During the service, GETI students assisted in distributing the Eucharist. Meeting in Berlin on 19 May - 1 June 2017, the Global Ecumenical Theological Institute 2017 (GETI'17) gathers young Christian theologians from Europe and around the world to study and experience horizons of an ecumenical theology and ecclesiology. GETI’17 is organized under the patronage of the Conference of European Churches, and works under three key themes: Reforming Theology, Migrating Church, and Transforming Society.
