Un responsable du Vatican affirme que le Forum chrétien mondial est essentiel

[ENI] Un éminent représentant du Vatican a déclaré que l’Eglise catholique romaine saluait le Forum chrétien mondial, qui est un rassemblement sans précédent des divers courants du christianisme. “Lorsque les chrétiens sont divisés, la proclamation de l’Evangile souffre et c’est là une douleur que nous devons tous ressentir”, a déclaré l’évêque Brian Farrell, secrétaire du Conseil pontifical pour la promotion de l’unité des chrétiens.

Vatican official says world forum for Christianity is vital

[ENI] A senior Vatican official has said the Roman Catholic Church welcomes a new Global Christian Forum intended to bring together the diverse strands of Christianity as never before. “When Christians are divided, the preaching of the gospel suffers and this is a pain we all have to feel,” said Bishop Brian Farrell, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, addressing a 6-9 November meeting of the forum near Nairobi.

Ecumenism – or how to ride a bicycle between this life and the other

“Church unity is like riding a bicycle. We will fall unless we go forward.” This affirmation was posed as a challenge by Korean missiologist Wonsuk Ma to participants at the Global Christian Forum taking place on 6-9 November in Limuru, near Nairobi, Kenya.

In a keynote address delivered on the second day of the forum, Ma analyzed Christian developments in unity and mission over the last century. He affirmed that in Christian mission, the seemingly contradictory emphases on “life before death” and on “life after death” – which have separated “mainline” and “evangelical” Christians for decades – are actually complementary and in need of each other.

Evangelicals and Pentecostals look to new forms of unity

Evangelical, Pentecostal and Charismatic leaders attending a world Christian forum in Kenya that has brought together many of Christianity’s diverse strands, say it offers new opportunities, but they also warn of possible difficulties ahead.

“When you share your journey and discover how others people have travelled and find similarities in the journey, that helps you to travel together,” commented the Rev. Richard Howell of the Evangelical Fellowship of India.

About 240 leaders from Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Evangelical, Pentecostal and other churches and international organizations attended the forum in Limuru near Nairobi.

Organizers say the gathering aimed to bring together the various streams of Christianity that have traditionally not been “in conversation” with each other.

The World Council of Churches groups many of the world’s Anglican, Protestant and Orthodox denominations but the Roman Catholic Church does not belong to the Geneva-based WCC, nor do many Evangelical, Pentecostal or Charismatic churches.

In many parts of the world, Pentecostal and so-called non-mainline Protestant churches are growing, while mainstream churches continue to lose membership.

“A new form of ecumenism is needed that is able to embrace the challenges of world-wide Christianity,” Pentecostal theologian and scholar Cheryl Bridges-Johns said in an 8 November address to participants.

Landmines after the Mine Ban Treaty: What now?

A video and presentation by Professor R. L. Kushwaha from the University of Saskatchewan’s Department of Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering is scheduled for Thursday, November 8th, from 7 to 9 pm in the St. Thomas More College Auditorium.

The international treaty banning anti-personnel mines was signed with great acclaim in 1997 and Canada’s leadership role in this initiative was a source of national pride to many. In 1999, Dr. Lal Kushwaha received his first grant from the Department of National Defence to develop efficient, cost effective devices for clearing landmines. Dr. Kushwaha will talk about the landmine problem, the work of U of S Landmine Research Group (Agricultural and Bioresource Engineering Dept.), and recent developments. There will be an opportunity to talk with Professor Kushwaha afterwards over refreshments.

Ecumenism needs reinvention, Pentecostal scholar says

Pentecostal theologian and scholar Cheryl Bridges-Johns proposed a radical reinvention of the ecumenical movement in a keynote address delivered on the third day of the Global Christian Forum which takes place 6-9 November in Limuru, near Nairobi, Kenya.

Bridges-Johns, a professor at the Theological Seminary of the Church of God in Cleveland (Tennessee), US, sparked a vivid discussion with her lecture, which elaborated on a statement from the 1961 New Delhi assembly of the World Council of Churches: “the achievement of unity will involve nothing less than a death and rebirth of many forms of church life as we have known them”.
