Many churches and Christian communities continue to live in isolation from one another. Some have not found it necessary to come closer to traditions that differ from their own. Others have been unable to find opportunities for engaging with others, or have felt excluded and rejected.
TheGlobal Christian Forum seeks to offer new opportunities for broadening and deepening encounters.
It is especially intended to promote new relationships between and among Christian constituencies :
- which have not been in conversation with one another
- who are in conversation with only a select group of partners
- who have engaged in existing ecumenical relationships.
The Global Christian Forum is pursuing this goal through the creation of a ‘space’ where participants all meet on an equal basis, to foster mutual respect, and to explore and address together common concerns.
