From Conflict to Convergence: October 6 Convocation

Prof. Timothy WengertJoin the seminary community Tuesday, October 6, to hear Professor Emeritus Timothy J. Wengert address the topic of “From Conflict to Convergence.” His remarks, which will follow the visit to Philadelphia of Pope Francis in late September, will feature a look at critical developments in Lutheran/Roman Catholic dialogue.

“Early in 2015, Pope Francis mentioned that the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 would provide the first opportunity for Lutherans and Roman Catholics to commemorate the event together,” Wengert said. “One remarkable resource for such joint commemoration was produced in 2014 by the International Lutheran/Roman Catholic dialogue, From Conflict to Communion.

Professor Wengert explained that his talk will highlight the most important aspects of that vital document and explore ways in which ecumenical conversations with other Christians fulfill the deepest hopes of the Reformation and can well aid the continuing renewal of our churches.

Professor Wengert encourages participants to download for their enrichment From Conflict to Communion free of charge (pdf).
