Annual Ecumenical Lecture: Ecumenism Today

Wednesday 16 June 2010

Lecturer : Archbishop Jeffrey Driver, Anglican Archbishop of Adelaide

The lecture was focus on Contemporary Ecumenics. The ecumenical scene today is not the same as in the past. We are in a new situation. However, some in our churches are still working on a past understanding of ecumenism and others on a newer understanding. Do we have an ecumenism then and now situation in our churches, a once and future ecumenism? Are we in transition? What is ecumenism today? Jeffrey Driver explored the theme Ecumenism Today.
