Please find inside the article the Easter greeting of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren.
Peace be with you in these stormy times!
#ECCB The ECCB is helping people fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The main thing is happening in the parishes.
#ECCB Proceeds from the ECCB and Diaconia collections are allocated for aid in Ukraine and the Czech Republic.
#ECCB The Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren has a new hymnal. We first sang from it during advent 2021, concluding a long and difficult process of its preparation.
#ECCB #Diaconia „It is with great unease that we watch images of the occupying armies in eastern Ukraine. We listen with concern to the pernicious rhetoric of those who are forcibly usurping power and bending truth and law to their advantage...
There is hardly anybody in the Czech Republic who hasn’t heard of Cesta domů, a palliative care organisation. This year, it is celebrating twenty years since it was founded (spring 2001). Cesta domů offers hospice care at home, caring for terminally ill patients, but also helping the bereaved families.
#ECCB The Weeks Against Racism were gaining popularity in Germany as early as the 1970s.

#Diaconia In the business environment, companies tend to keep their plans a secret from the competition. Diaconia, however, is not a business, it is a public service established by the church, with a wide range of supporters. „Therefore, I think it is our duty to keep the public informed about our plans, about the direction we are headed,“ says director of the ECCB’s Diaconia, Jan Soběslavský.
#Faculty The Evangelical Theological Faculty regularly announces calls for applications for study visits or practical internships abroad.
#Faculty Theology as a subject has been studied for a very long time. That does not mean, however, that it does not reflect and respond to the era we live in today. Petr Gallus, the vice dean, has talked to us about what it’s like to study theology at the Protestant Theological Faculty of the Charles University in Prague (PTF CU) and explained why this is a good choice for those who like to seek answers to their questions using a wide range of resources.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. (Psalm 46)
