I simply don't "get" ecumenism. What's the point? I think showing others by example is better than endless dialogue. Confucians do not believe in God and neither do Buddhist. Buddhists (I was a former Buddhist) believe man by his own efforts can find true peace with no reference to grace, God, Christ or anything else. Again, what's the point?
