Our 'Auftrag' magazine sheds light on topics related to mission and ecumenism, with plenty of illustrative and background material. This magazine is published by the German-language Mission Press Cooperative (Kooperation deutschsprachige Missionspresse), which includes Mission 21 and five other mission organisations in Germany and Austria. Each issue focuses on one particular topic or geographical area. The 40-page 'Auftrag' magazine is published four times each year, in German, as a printed edition for Mission 21's benefactors.
Latest issue: auftrag 1/2019
This issue is all about how people and cultures meet on a musical level. What does the term world music stand for? A portrait of the band Embryo, which has been exploring the musical universes of this world for 50 years, contains interesting reflections on this subject. Further topics:
- Abuse and human trafficking in Peru
- The battle for white gold in Burkina Faso: GMO-free cotton
Mission 21's international co-workers posted to partner churches and organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America report at regular intervals. Their circular letters (in German) afford personal insights into projects on the ground.
