DECLARATION ON THE WAY, will be discussed for about an hour with Pastor Fitch on Wednesdays, beginning January 4, at 1:30 PM in the former Church Office. Lutherans are still committed to the Church as reformers, and DECLARATION ON THE WAY is an ecumenical text that reflects 50 years of Lutheran-Roman Catholic dialogue before the 500th Reformation Anniversary in 2017. This document is on the way toward the visible Christian unity for which Christ prayed, focused in three crucial topics: church, ministry, and Eucharist. This statement of global and local dialogues draws together 32 consensus statements of agreement where there are no longer church-dividing differences. Another portion identifies some “remaining differences” which points our way forward.
