How ecumenism can help the Anglican Communion – Alyson Barnett-Cowan


Ecumenists know a thing or two about having a good conversation, and the Lambeth Conference could learn from this.

So says the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan in a reflection posted on General Synod’s Lambeth website.  The Rev. Barnett-Cowan writes not only as Director of Faith, Worship, and Ministry at General Synod, but also an experienced leader of ecumenical discussions and an ecumenical staff at Lambeth.

The Rev. Barnett-Cowan also passes on some principles for dialogue, including this challenging thought: “We should presume that those with whom we differ are acting in good faith.”
