Unity and Justice

For the next several days I will be involved in the 62nd Meeting of the Anglican – Roman Catholic dialogue here in the United States (ARC-USA). This is one of our longest and most productive ecumenical relationships, even though — of course — there are many issues yet to be resolved. Our “bonds of affection” on this dialogue are deep indeed and I always look forward to these twice-a-year meetings.

After that, I will remain in Washington, DC to participate in an Ecumenical Conversation on the Philippines, standing with our own Episcopal Church in the Philippines and our full communion partner there, the Iglesia Filipina Independiente (the Philippine Independent Church). We seek to join with them in demanding that their government pay attention to the so-called “extra judicial” killings which have martyred Christian clergy and lay persons in recent months and years for criticizing the Arroyo government.

More on both of these meetings later…as we seek to serve both unity and justice.
