Prayer for Christian Unity
Its always good for Christians to pray together.
This is especially important when the topic is ecumenical ethics.
The Conference this week at Loyola College of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology was a wonderful time to pray together and to consider important and somewhat divisive matters in depth. The context of prayer keeps us focused.
I had numerous substantive conversations–A current Consortium trustee Pastor Scott Ickert and I had an opportunity to discuss the local Lutheran-Jewish Dialogue and its implications. Former Consortium Board Chairman Tom Prinz and I were able to spend some time talking on the pastoral implications of ethical divergences on homosexuality.
All is all there is always a lot for me to learn.
