President’s Report to the Board of the Council on Christian Unity
April 7, 2016
While I acknowledge that it is not easy to live out transitions, I believe that the fact that we are constantly facing transition could actually mean the life-fullness of the church. The ability of move is a physical sign of health. We can move because we understand the nature of transition, fluidity, which is a mental sign of good health. In these transitions, our calling as the Council on Christian Unity is to give leadership to our whole church, the Council itself, and the larger ecumenical communities in moving forward—not backward—in unity, with the clear sense of God’s calling for the sake of the world.
