Today marks the 20th anniversary of German unity inand maybe the opportunity for a penultimate post on Holy Disorder. The days between 7 October and 3 October marked not only the disappearance of the German communist half-state but reshaped Europe and the world.
Did the unification of Germany mark the "end" of the autumn revolution of ?
In summer I sat in a small church near the Polish-German border at which the pastor recalled the biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites out of the captivity of Egypt, and how they waited 40 years before arriving in the promised land of milk and honey.
Many people, he said, saw the 40 years of the GDR as the lost time of the desert from which they were now being released into the promised land. But what, he said, if the events of and did not mark the arrival in the promised land, but rather only the flight from the captivity of Egypt that would be followed by 40 years in the desert?
What do we say today, 20 years after the unification of Germany as a European state? One of the first posts came from Leipzigthe scene of the "turning point" on 9 October when thousands of people took to the street to demand change, many of them coming from prayers for peace in the city's churches.
It coincided with the 20th anniversary of the conclusion of the Ecumenical Assembly for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creationand which made unprecedented demands for change. To mark the 20th anniversary of German unity, we are posting the English provisional translation of an address by Heino Falckeone of those at the forefront of the Ecumenical Assembly.
The address was about how the Central Germany Kirchentag a church congress that was part of the Holy Disorder campaign in autumn should remember the events 20 years earlier. Were they events of the past to be discussed with historical distance, or are they events which still have a significance today?
How does a Kirchentag remember autumn ?
There is one great difficulty about making a historical date the theme of a Kirchentag. A Kirchentag is part of the general remembrance of an event, but remembrance is always also fashioned by contemporary interests, that a Kirchentag needs to examine critically.
But this is of interest only to a very limited proportion of potential participants. A Kirchentag is always focussed on contemporary challenges, issues, fears and hopes. If it addresses these issues, then the autumn revolution of appear more or less only a backdrop.
There needs to be consideration therefore not only about the content of the sessions, but also their style. Against this background, the Kirchentag needs also to be certain that it has specific viewpoint through which the Christian community sees its history: It sees the events of 20 years ago as an event in our dealings with God and in the light of the biblical witness, looks back to discover what God has to say through these events to us today.
Such a perspective therefore links yesterday, today and tomorrow. It avoids subjective-individualistic historical amnesia as well as an instrumentalization of history for self-legitimisation.
Seen historically, autumn was a revolution, implosion and improvisation. The surprising nature of the events for all those who were involved the "Wow!
The prayers for peace - as they were organized and understood by participants - were themselves a testimony to this truth of faith. This perspective does not prevents self-glory, a dispute of vanities and the instrumentalisation of the event for political interests.
It also raises the question of how we as Christians and churches deal with history. We have to avoid subjectivist and individualistic historical amnesia as well as a presumption that we can sit "in judgement" over the globalized world.- Explore the role of Social media/networking in marketing Marketing is defined as ‘the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large’ (American Marketing Association July ).
