Ecumenical institutions and organizations--NCC Faith and Order Commission

Continuing a series of posts calling attention to selected resources featured in Appendix 1, "Resources for Ecumenical Engagement," in Ecumenism Means You, Too: Ordinary Christians and the Quest for Christian Unity (Cascade Books, 2010):

As summarized in the constitution of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, the mission of its Faith and Order Commission is to “affirm the oneness of the Church of Jesus Christ and keep before the churches the Gospel call to visible unity in one faith and one Eucharist communion, expressed in worship and in common life in Christ, in order that the world may believe.” The Commission sponsors annual study groups, a series of books and occasional papers, and the electronic journal New Horizons in Faith and Order.

Interested in Ecumenism Means You, Too? Order the book directly from Cascade Books or via Amazon.
