CCME and CEC merge

So the official business of the CEC central committee ended today with the confirmation that the general assembly of the Churches' Commission on Migrants in Europe has agreed to merge with CEC and become its third commission, alongside the Church and Society Commission and the Churches in Dialogue Commission.
At the end of the meetings members and moderators of CEC and CCME came together for prayers, listening to the passage from Matthew 25
“Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
