New Roads from Rome
The Surprising & Unpredictable Pilgrimage of the New Ecumenism
by Kenneth D. Whitehead
We live in an age of ecumenism our ancestors of just a few generations ago could not have imagined. We are actively encouraged by our churches to respect and maintain good relations with other Christians, work cooperatively with them on common tasks in society at large, and, on appropriate occasions, even pray with them.
Visits back and forth by the leaders of various Churches and communions are the order of the day. Joint statements and agreements by church leaders are similarly quite frequent. Christian reunion may not have been achieved as yet, but this has seemingly not been . . .
