L’œcuménisme – ou l’art de faire du vélo entre cette vie et la prochaine

“L’unité de l’Eglise, c’est comme la bicyclette: si on s’arrête, on tombe.” Cette affirmation provocante a été lancée par le missiologue coréen Wonsuk Ma aux participants du Forum chrétien mondial, qui s’est tenu du 6 au 9 novembre à Limuru, prés de Nairobi, Kenya.

Dans un exposé fondamental présenté le deuxième jour de cette réunion, M. Ma a examiné l’évolution de l’unité et de la mission chrétiennes au cours du dernier siècle, affirmant que dans la mission, la manière apparemment contradictoire d’insister sur “la vie avant la mort” et sur “la vie après la mort”, qui a divisé les chrétiens “traditionnels” et “évangéliques” pendant des décennies représentent deux tendances en fait complémentaires et indispensables l’une à l’autre.

“Historic breakthrough” – Global Christian Forum to go forward, extending an invitation to join the encounter

After four days of meetings, some 240 leaders of a broad range of churches, confessions and interchurch organizations from over 70 countries agreed to carry forward what they call “the Global Christian Forum process”, an open platform for encounter and dialogue whose goal is to “foster mutual respect, explore and address common challenges”.

Participants broke into a spontaneous doxology when the final draft of a “Message from the Global Christian Forum to Brothers and Sisters in Christ Throughout the World” was approved at the last session of the meeting, which took place 6-9 November in Limuru, near Nairobi, Kenya.

The Global Christian Forum, an historic achievement

When I teach my students about the ecumenical movement, I tell them that the establishment of the World Council of Churches in 1948 is an historic achievement. It is historic because the WCC is the principal instrument of the ecumenical movement in the 20th century. It is historic because it sets a benchmark in church history for the commitment of the churches to walk together. It is an achievement of unparalleled importance because it brought together the historic churches of the Reformation together with the Eastern churches in a commitment to seek visible unity and common witness. However, even in 1948 there was an awareness that there were essential voices missing from the ecumenical table.

The retired bishop of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador, Don Harvey, has left the Anglican Church of Canada to become a bishop in the South American province of the Southern Cone, a decision that the primate of the Canadian church acknowledged would pose “complications” for the already fragile unity within the local church and the worldwide Anglican Communion.
