US Christian unity summit identifies common challenges

Catholic World News - February 13, 2012

At the invitation of Cardinal William Keeler, the retired Archbishop of Baltimore, representatives of four ecumenical organizations--Christian Churches Together in the USA, Churches Uniting in Christ, the National Council of Churches of Christ, and the National Association of Evangelicals--met at St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore in January to discuss common challenges.

“Among these challenges are reduced financial resources in many communions and organizations, a post-Christian secular environment, intensified interfaith engagements, and both continuing and new challenges regarding poverty, racism, the environment and religious freedom,” according to a statement from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
