Archbishop's message to the Receptive Ecumenism conference in Connecticut, USA
Monday 9th June 2014Archbishop Justin has sent a message to the Third International Receptive Conference at Fairfield University, Connecticut, USA, 9-12 June.
In his message Archbishop Justin hails the conference, which is organised by Fairfield University, USA, and Durham University, as "a sign of a rediscovery of the ecumenical spirit, which remains an important element for participation in the life of world Christianity."
The Archbishop says different churches are very good at doing social mission together, with "remarkable" opportunities in this regard presently opening up, but that we now need urgently to "complement that with a fresh means of growing together ecclesiastically, organisationally, and theologically. Receptive Ecumenism provides an additional way to take us forward."
