Receptive Ecumenism: The Role of the Spirit in New Ecumenical Endeavors

Friday, 17 September 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join the Diocese for a conversation with Dr. Paul D. Murray, Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean-Director of the Centre for Catholic Studies at Durham University, UK, on the topic of Receptive Ecumenism, its pneumatological underpinnings and the unique opportunities this provides for new ecumenical endeavors, particularly between Catholics and those within the Evangelical and Pentecostal streams of Christianity. Founded on the assumption that the way forward in the ecumenical journey requires a transformative learning from our ecumenical partners, Dr. Murray will focus on the relationship between such receptive ecclesial learning and the work of the Spirit within this process. Significant attention will be given to the implementation of Receptive Ecumenism on a parochial or congregational level along with the possibilities this strategy has for inviting new communities to the table who are not yet present in the ecumenical project. Following the lecture, time will be allotted for dialogue between participants and Dr. Murray.
