Transforming Ecumenism – ”listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches” (Rev 2:7)

Transforming Ecumenism – ”listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches” (Rev 2:7)

 

The fifth international conference on Receptive Ecumenism will continue exploring the ecclesiological reparative, critical constructive task of ecumenical ecclesiology that was introduced in the previous conferences. Receptive Ecumenism is a fresh ecumenical methodology emphasizing receptivity, learning, and listening. Since its inception, the concept has taken root in many diverse contexts around the globe.

At this conference, we hope to take this process a step further as we will reflect on the transformative impact of Receptive Ecumenism as an instrument for ecclesial transformation. To which extend are the churches willing to “listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches” (Rev 2:7)? As in the previous conferences, we will have the opportunity to listen to our keynote speakers in plenaries as well as to paper presentations in a number of parallel sessions.
