The CCM at its recent 13th Triennial General Assembly recommended that the Churches should be challenged to take ecumenism seriously. One way to achieve that is to promote lectures on ecumenical theme.
This is an invitation to you to join us for an interesting lecture by a theologian well-versed in ecumenism.
