Latin American Theological Fellowship

Regional Consultation for Mexico, Central America, Panama and Caribbean, San José, Costa Rica, 6-7 August 2009

On 6-7 August 2009, in San José, Costa Rica, 60 participants from 10 different countries developed the topic of Church, Power and Mission in Latin America Today. The use and abuse of power was dealt with both in relation to internal church relations, leadership and such and in relation to Christian presence in the broader socio-political sphere. Also, during this consultation, a letter was drafted condemning the coup in Honduras and calling for a peaceful solution to the conflict. Close to twenty papers were presented and processed in plenaries and groups.
