Inter-Orthodox Conference on Ecumenism at the University of Chicago
Inter-Orthodox Conference at the University of Chicago entitled "Orthodoxy and Modern Ecumenism: Theological, Ecclesiological, and Moral Problems", organized by "Romaiosyni", the Diocesan Bulletin of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of America of the Old Calendar, and St. John the Forerunner Greek Orthodox Church in Willow Springs, Illinois. It will be on March 18, the Sunday of St. John of the Ladder, from 3PM to 6PM.
The goal of the conference is to foster a sincere and sober dialogue within Orthodoxy on the topic of Ecumenism, bringing together the elements of traditionalist Orthodox Christians in a common and open forum. It is tragic that there is much discussion today about dialogue, intercommunion, openness, mutual recognition, and unity between the various Christian denominations, yet within Orthodoxy there has not been a healthy dialogue, as the various voices that object to Orthodox participation in Ecumenism are shunned and marginalized as "fanatical". The participation of both "Old Calendarists" and "New Calendarists" is encouraged.
Formal papers will be presented by a number of speakers and there will be an open forum for discussion. The conference is open to the general public.
