A Presbyterian, a Methodist, a Baptist, a Catholic, and a Pentecostal walk into a church—it sounds like the start of a joke. But it’s actually the start of something quite biblical. The October 2013 issue of Presbyterians Today takes a look at what brings Christians together across theological differences, exploring new strategies for building an ecumenical movement in the 21st century. Featuring stories of multidenominational congregations, ecumenical hospital chaplaincy and college ministry, seminary students going to South Korea for the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches, and ecumenical accompaniment in Palestine, this issue provides a glimpse into the many ways Presbyterians are seeking to build up the one body of Christ.
Be sure also to check out a very special cross-generational fast chat with Jane Dempsey Douglass, the first woman president of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, and Aaron Stauffer, a young adult and seminarian serving as a local coordinator for the World Student Christian Federation.
