By The Reverend L. Humphrey Walz
Two four-day ecumenical conferences on Middle Eastern economic development in Jordan and Cyprus are described in the current issue of the Middle East Council of Churches' MECC NewsReport. Each conference on the role of Christian ethics and morality in development involved about 50 theologians, economists, sociologists and educators from Melkite, Roman Catholic, Christian Orthodox and Protestant churches, agencies and institutions in the Middle East. There were also participants from Greece, Holland, Kenya, Switzerland and the U.S.A.
