For the Conversion of the Churches

For the Conversion of the Churches
Groupe des Dombes
WCC Publications, 1993
ISBN: 978-2-8254-1123-0

"An independent group of Catholics and Protestants in France issues a challenge to the divided church: to recognize that their identity is grounded in a continual conversion -- without which their unity can never be realized." Although the Groupe des Dombes members are not directly appointed by their churches, their influence has been extremely significant over their inception over 50 years ago. The essential message of this text, that the churches themselves must undergo a thorough ecumenical conversion, has been expressed as well in Pope John Paul II's encyclical "Ut Unum Sint."

Translated from the French text by James Greig. Original title "Pour la conversion des Églises" (Paris: Éditions du Centurion, 1991).
