The work of ecumenism in our generation will include looking at the ways in which those within one Christian tradition can find wisdom and new learnings from those within other traditions. What we come to see is that we are all enriched when we learn to draw on these insights and perspectives and see central elements of the Christian faith through a different lens, perhaps. This lecture will be somewhat autobiographical as the speaker acknowledges his own indebtedness to the wisdom of the Catholic spiritual and theological tradition.
This lecture is part of our Summer Lecture 2016 series.
