Pilgrims of Hope: an ecumenical journey 1980-2010 by Raymond K Williamson

Pilgrims of Hope is an account of the ecumenical endeavour of the churches in Australia over three decades.  It tells of the development of ecumenism in Australia as it has been expressed through the various national and state councils of churches during that period, 1980-2010.  In doing so, the book presents ecumenism as an all-embracing vision for unity and renewal in the whole Church and in the whole human community.
The author, The Reverend Dr Ray Williamson, is an Anglican priest, a graduate of Sydney and Newcastle universities and has been a theological teacher throughout his ordained ministry.  He served as General Secretary of the NSW Ecumenical Council for twenty-one years, during which time he also acted as the secretary of two national ecumenical commissions.  He was a co-founder of and continues to work with the Centre for Ecumenical Studies.
BYO Lunch. Tea/coffee available.


Gold coin donation invited.

Venue of Event:

SA Council of Churches Office, 65 Flinders St, Adelaide

Longing, Listening, Learning and Loving in the Way of Christ: the promise and potential of Receptive Ecumenism

Guest Presenters include:
• Professor Catherine Clifford, St Paul University, Ottawa, Canada
• The Rt Rev'd John Stead, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Willochra
• Rev David Smith, Immediate Past President of the Baptist Churches of SA, and Pastor at West Beach Baptist Church

Friday evening: Ecumenism in the 21st Century: Deepening Recognition and Receptive Learning Lecture by Professor Catherine Clifford.
Saturday morning: Through prayer, theological reflection, conversation and morning tea, we will continue to consider Catherine’s Lecture and explore the promise and potential of Receptive Ecumenism: nurturing a disposition which we and our world need today, from acting as if we are right, if only the others could ‘get it’…to recognising that we all have amazing gifts to share and receive; noticing and responding to processes or structures in our churches that may diminish, obscure - or even extinguish - the light of Christ; healing division, within and across the churches; growing and flourishing together as a faithful and seamless sign of love and unity in, with and for our the way of Christ.
