Avalee, though you didn't put the entire article in here, it started out stating this was a meeting of the Christian World Communions, which is connected with the World Council of Churches.

This paragraph from an earlier document this year shows that the SDA church belongs to this organization.

APD Adventist Press Service

New York, N.Y., U.S.A.,20.08.2000/APD The world's major religions - including Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism - will be represented at the first-ever UN-sponsored religious summit to be held at the United Nations on August 28 in New York. For the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a Christian World Communion, Jonathan Gallagher, Associate Director for Public Affairs and Religious Liberty will participate at this meeting.
