Three Protestant leaders in Germany meet to discuss a constitution for a united German Protestant Church.

German Christians have been arguing since the beginning of the month that Protestants need to reorganize the 28 regional Protestant churches in Germany to create a single, national Protestant church under the leadership of a single, national bishop.

Hermann Kapler, president of the old-Prussian Evangelical Supreme Church Council, represents United Protestantism. August Marahrens, state bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran State Church of Hanover, represents the Lutherans. Hermann-Albert Klugkist Hesse, director of the preacher seminary in Wuppertal, represents the Reformed church. Former army chaplain Ludwig Müller from Königsberg represents the German Christian movement.

The ultimate goal of these negotiations is to dissolve the German Evangelical Church Federation and its 28 church bodies, then replace them with a united Protestant church which they will name the German Evangelical Church (Deutsche Evangelische Kirche).
