(16.02.2004) Zurich. Fifty-one agenda items to cover over the space of three days-around 36 hours per meeting, interrupted only by a few short breaks-that is the sequence of a typical session of the Co-ordination Group. The majority of the subjects it deals with are of a theological nature, a trend that has been evident for a few years now.
(21.01.2004) Zurich. The first big overseas trip of the new year led Chief Apostle Richard Fehr to Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. In a festive divine service he retired Apostle Shridhar Sonpasare and ordained Bishop Egnati Lukas Jagtap as a new apostle for India.
(31.12.2003) Brussels. The fourth Sunday of Advent led Chief Apostle Richard Fehr to Brussels, the capital of Belgium, where he conducted a festive divine service for approximately 500 brothers and sisters. The actual congregation was much larger, however, since more than 18,000 additional souls were connected through satellite technology. In this divine service the chief apostle ordained two apostles for Zambia and Malawi and also commissioned two district apostle helpers to support their District Apostle Duncan Mfune.
(11.04.2003) Zürich. On Sunday, 6th April 2003, Chief Apostle Richard Fehr held a festive Divine service in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. During this service he commissioned Apostles Michael Deppner and Frank Dzur as District Apostle Helpers.
(10.04.2003) "Sunshine, dreamlike sand, heavenly peace" The travel brochure had promised quite a lot. Brigitte and Peter had been looking forward immensely to this Easter vacation. The travel agent could not have done anything about the fact that, for one whole week, it poured in buckets. He might have known that the beach was teeming with garbage, however. What a nuisance. And there was probably no one, other than the travel agent, who would make you believe that the noise from the aeroplanes and the nearby disco had anything at all to do with heavenly peace. Brigitte and Peter are bitterly disappointed. Their Easter vacation ended up to be a nightmare because no one had told them the whole truth.
(09.04.2003) Singapore. The SARS virus has reached Singapore. This affects our new apostolic congregation as well. The rector of our Singapore congregation, Joseph Sim, describes the situation.
(20.09.2001) Zuerich. Chief Apostle Richard Fehr has returned from the USA healthy, safe and sound. On Sunday, September 16th, 2001, he held a divine service in Atlanta, Georgia, which was transmitted to all New Apostolic congregations throughout North America via satellite.
