EMSO AT THE REGIONAL BISHOP'S OFFICE
Emso reports: "Today was a big day! When I woke up in the morning, I was already very excited and almost didn't get a bite of my breakfast down. Even though I reaally like eating!
After breakfast I put on my most beautiful green dungarees, washed my big ears and practiced my smile in front of the mirror. Now I was in the best of moods and made my way across the city of Stuttgart to the church council (Oberkirchenrat) of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Württemberg. In Germany, the Oberkirchenrat is the highest service authority of a regional church, i.e. many important decisions are made and administered there.
There I met the Regional Bishop Frank Otfried July. He is in charge of the regional church, presides over the Oberkirchenrat and has a lot to do. But today he took his time for me, because the Regional Bishop also wanted to get to know our new booklet DIVERSITY.
VIELFALT Heft / DIVERSITY booklet (Design and Illustration: EMS/ Monika Richter/ Gert Albrecht)
The booklet VIELFALT belongs to our children's program YOU + ME: FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD of EMS. In the booklet, six girls and boys from different countries, who my best friend Pipit and I visited, introduce themselves. We not only visited them and took many photos, but also talked to them about their everyday life and their faith. The booklet offers appealing methods, beautiful illustrations and of course the photos and stories of the children. You can easily order the DIVERSITY booklet from us free of charge and use it for many hours of children's worship.
