The world is changing at an incredible pace. How do
Christians interact with other faith-based and humanitarian institutions
domestically and around the world? Ecumenical and Interreligious
Relations provides Presbyterians an opportunity to engage in
conversation, cooperation, and action with other ecclesial groups.
Presbyterians have been among the founders, leaders, and principle
supporters of global and national ecumenical bodies.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been at the forefront of local, regional, national, and global ecumenism for more than a century. Presbyterians have been ready to reflect on, pray for, and organize ecumenical initiatives in the life of the worldwide body of Christ and respond to the initiatives of others. From discussions of organic union to the formation of councils of churches, from common efforts in evangelism and mission to upholding concerns for justice and social service, Presbyterians have been deeply involved in the ecumenical work and witness of the church.
