Your Church Is Too Small: The Challenge of Ecumenical Witness in Today’s World
In his book Your Church Is Too Small, Dr. John Armstrong presents a vision of the unity possible for Christians across social, cultural, racial, and denominational lines. When Jesus’ followers seek unity through participation in the kingdom of God and the mission of Christ, they demonstrate God’s character to a watching world. Focusing on John 13:34-35, 17:20-23 and 20:31, Armstrong will show how Jesus’ clear command to his disciples led to his prayer that we be “one” in his kingdom. This one allows for Christians to be diverse while clearly requiring service of God in unity. In this talk Armstrong will discuss the idea of “missional-ecumenism,” particularly within the context of Pope Benedict’s initiatives regarding evangelization and ecumenism.
