Open and controversial - Zwingli-Gsprööch

Zwingli-Gsprööch

For the 500th anniversary of his reformation Zwingli rises from the pedestal and seeks the conversation.

Huldrych Zwingli was a Swiss theologian and the first Zurich reformer. The reformed church emerged from the Zurich and Geneva Reformations. For the 500th anniversary of his reformation Zwingli rises from the pedestal and seeks the conversation with the Zurich people of today.

This open and sometimes controversial "Zwingli Gsprööch" takes place in every city district. In Altstetten near the Lindenplatz in front of the Hotel Spirgarten, the "Gsprööch" will revolve around the topic "addiction".

Altstetten and addiction, is that right? Yes, because addiction and dependency are issues everywhere. And not least because in Altstetten until 1992 one as a professional colleague Zwingli officiated, who just made his name with his commitment to the homeless and addicts: Pastor Ernst Sieber.
