Fr. John Erickson brings years of experience in Ecumenism and teaching in Eastern Orthodox theological studies to reflect on the shifting terrain of what unites and divides in the quest for Christian Unity. While he will focus on the relations between the Eastern Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Church, he will identify the issues of unity and division in terms that apply to all Christian communities and individuals who care deeply about Church Unity.
