The BOCS Foundation welcomes you to the English-language e-mail conference of Virtual Village of the Graz '97 Assembly.
In connection with the programs of the Second European Ecumenical
Assembly, we send each day a newsletter of the European Ecumenical
Coalition and - as enclosures - texts of hearings, alerts, documents
and pictures which we receive in a forwardable form.
The Virtual Village's aim is not only to inform those who are not
able to come to Graz, but also to offer the opportunity to send your
remarks and comments, to contribute by e-mail. We are awaiting your
letters and notes. We are going to circulate them not only on the
list in the language in which you wrote the text, but will also take
them into consideration by editing the "summarized echo from the
world" column of daily newsletter of the Coalition.
The Grazroots "conference" (at least in English and Hungarian) will
continue after the EEA2 in Graz. After the EEA1 in Basel, the
European JPIC Network, the Kairos Europe and other initiatives tried
to keep together those who carried out the resolutions of the
Assembly in their everyday life.
The Grazroots "conference" wishes to help such a mission after Graz.
We are looking forward to your letters during the week of the
Assembly, as well as afterwards.
Most of the texts will be published in English and Hungarian. In
several cases we will not be able to translate the texts, so they
will appear just in the language in which we get them. Therefore the
content of the various language lists may differ from each other.
We suggest you subscribe in all the languages you speak or
