Sermon from the opening service of Ecumenical Kirchentag

I have just posted the English translation of the sermon from the opening service of the 2nd Ecumenical Kirchentag to the docs sections youa can find it here. It was a dialogue sermon between Bishop Friedrich and Archbishop Marx and worked well. "That we may have hope ..."
Interesting how many references there have been to the issue of child sex abuse in the church in the opening service through the prayers and then through the greetings from the Bundespresident Horst Köhler. The issue does seem to be being faced squarely - at least now.
