[Re-post of blog entry from August 3, 2012 with updated links for relocated web sites]
With my permission, the web sites of the Christian Unity Ministry of Santa Maria Del Mar Catholic Church in Flagler Beach, Florida and Flagler Churches Together in Prayer and Song have posted a synopsis of "Leaves You if You Don't Care for It: Ten Things You Can Do for the Unity of the Church," chapter 4 in my book Ecumenism Means You, Too: Ordinary Christians and the Quest for Christian Unity (click on hyperlinks for the synopses as they appear on the respective web sites). Many thanks to Dr. Chau T. Phan, a retired professor of political science, member of Santa Maria Del Mar Catholic Church, and lay advocate for the unity of the church, for calling attention to the book in this way. Readers of Ecclesial Theology will find Dr. Phan's account of his calling to this lay ecumenical vocation interesting and inspiring. I also encourage having a look around the web site of the Christian Unity Ministry coordinated by Dr. Phan at Santa Maria Del Mar Catholic Church--the most active local church effort at grassroots ecumenical engagement I've come across to date.
