STUMBLING BLOCKS AND SPRINGBOARDS: Working Together for Forgiveness and Reconciliation


STUMBLING BLOCKS AND SPRINGBOARDS: Working Together for Forgiveness and Reconciliation

A Virtual Event hosted on Zoom

You are invited to participate in a unique ecumenical event that will bring together theologians, church leaders and members from different countries and contexts. Because of serious concerns about the continuing spread of COVID-19 in many countries, the Anglican-Lutheran Society cancelled a conference that was to take place in Rome in October 2020. Instead, a virtual conference will explore the achievements and outstanding issues on the road to unity, featuring in particular the bi-lateral relationships between the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican and Lutheran Churches.

The conference will be in two parts:

The first session will be delivered as pre-recorded videos and will include presentations about the progress made and some of the remaining challenges in dialogues between Roman Catholics and Anglicans and between Roman Catholics and Lutherans. The videos will be available on YouTube and can be watched from 1 May by accessing a link that will be provided here on that day; please check this page on or after 1 May.

The second session will be screened live on Zoom at 14.00GMT/UTC* on 21 May and those wishing to view it and participate must register by 30 April 2021.
