Reflections on the Global Christian Forum

shutterstock_158678699What difference does another conference on Christian unity have on the way congregations actually relate to one another? Bishop Brian Farrell, Secretary of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, urged those gathered at the third Global Christian Forum in Bogata, Columbia to work out the consequences of what they had discovered together. Among others who shaped the experience, and raised the important questions at the meeting, were three Boston University alumni affiliated with the Center for Global Christianity and Mission: Casely Essamuah (’03), Ruth Padilla DeBorst (’16), and Gina Zurlo (’17). In combination with others, they are trying to understand how Global Christianity and Christian unity are held together. For a description of the meeting, Wes Granberg-Michaelson submitted an article describing “An Open Window On a Mutilated Body” in Sojourners magazine.
