The Future of Ecumenism
STH TM 859
This course focuses on "The Future of Ecumenism and the Transformation of World Christianity in the 21stCentury: Tracking the WCC General Assembly Theme; 'God of Life, lead us to Justice and Peace.'" As such, it juxtaposes the interests of the ecumenical movement even as it verges with evangelical and interfaith interests together with the Just Peace initiatives as defined at the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation in Jamaica (2011). This course is also a part of the World Council of Churches' Global Ecumenical Theological Institute (GETI) as facilitated internationally and at Busan, Republic of Korea, location of the 10th General Assembly of the WCC. Participants in this course will have immediate or digital connection with this assembly.
