  • On the maturation of Receptive Ecumenism: The connection between Receptive
           Ecumenism and Spiritual Ecumenism
    • Authors: Pizzey; A.
      Pages: 108 - 125
      Abstract: While Receptive Ecumenism has great potential, certain points of its methodology require further elucidation. Searching for clarity over these aspects calls for a particular focus on the connection between Receptive Ecumenism and Spiritual Ecumenism. There are significant links between Receptive and Spiritual Ecumenism, such as an emphasis on interior conversion. However, there are also tensions between them, most notably surrounding the concept of the ecumenical gift exchange. This article proposes that Receptive Ecumenism cannot be properly understood without reference to Spiritual Ecumenism, and that, in fact, Spiritual Ecumenism enriches, and may provide the necessary criteria for, Receptive Ecumenism.

  • Receptive Ecumenism through Asias triple dialogue theology
    • Authors: Chia; E.
      Pages: 126 - 136
      Abstract: The present article has as its premise that the objectives of Receptive Ecumenism, a method of engagement recently promoted in western churches, is already well captured by the Asian Church’s method of triple dialogue. Both emphasize the Christian community’s willingness to learn from rather than to teach their partners-in-dialogue. The contextual realities which gave rise to the Asian Church’s theology of dialogue with the poor, the religions and the cultures of Asia will be discussed, especially with reference to the teachings and experiences of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences.

  • Synodality and primacy: Reflections from the Australian Lutheran/Roman
           Catholic Dialogue
    • Authors: Edwards; D.
      Pages: 137 - 148
      Abstract: A fundamental level of Receptive Ccumenism is that of the reception by a dialoguing church of an institutional charism of a partner church as a gift of the Spirit. It is proposed here that in the Lutheran/Roman Catholic Dialogue in Australia, this kind of receptivity has been evident in two ways. First, at least in part through this dialogue, the Lutheran Church of Australia has come to a new reception of episcopacy. Second, in and through this same dialogue, Roman Catholic participants have come to see that their church has much to receive from the Lutheran Church of Australia with regard to synodality, above all in fully involving the lay faithful in synodal structures of church life.

  • Global Pentecostal consultations - Receptive Ecumenism in practice or,
           'any friend of Jesus is a friend of mine
    • Authors: Ormerod; N.
      Pages: 149 - 159
      Abstract: In 2012 and 2013 the author was privileged to attend two global consultations on Pentecostalism, one in Oxford, the other in Sydney, as the official Catholic observer, together with Tamara Grdzelidze representing the World Council of Churches (WCC). These consultations brought together Pentecostal theologians from all parts of the globe to discuss the present situation of Pentecostalism. The two consultations reveal the great diversity within Pentecostalism and their struggles to find their own place within the larger Christian ecumenical movement. The presence of a Catholic and WCC observer, plus papers from Orthodox and Baptist speakers indicate the willingness of the Pentecostal movement to both listen and speak to the broader Christian churches. In light of the various presentations at the two consultations this article will examine the global situation of Pentecostalism from a Catholic perspective, considering the challenges posed to and by this movement for the whole church.

  • The ecumenism of ecology
    • Authors: Kelly; A. J.
      Pages: 160 - 175
      Abstract: In the light of Pope Francis’s encyclical on ecology, Laudato si’, this article points to the ecumenical significance of an ecological conversion as integral to the Christian vocation and the promotion of an authentic catholicity. Etymologically speaking, a ‘religious’ commitment intrinsically brings together spiritual and ecological concerns, and inspires new choices in our moral conduct. In ecumenical terms, among the many possible topics, those of creation, Trinity and Eucharist suggest broad and deep dimensions of ecological vision and commitment for the churches that can continue to grow.

  • Revelation and love
    • Authors: Glyn SJ; J.
      Pages: 176 - 191
      Abstract: Revelation has traditionally been understood either as a propositional phenomenon or as a matter of the creation of a relationship with God. This article argues that, while there is truth in both views, revelation's central purpose is the manifestation of divine love, and the calling forth of love (for God and other humans) in response. To make its case, the article considers ‘special’ revelation in the Old and New Testaments and, finally, briefly examines the implications of this view for fundamental theology in general.

  • Journey and rest: Hebrews, pilgrimage, and the work of theological
    • Authors: Winter; S.
      Pages: 192 - 207
      Abstract: This article explores the relationship between the motifs of ‘journey’ and ‘rest’ in Hebrews with a view to highlighting the importance and characteristic features of the text’s vision of theological education. The importance of αacute;α in Hebrews is affirmed, and contrasted with the related but distinct perspective of the Gospel of Truth. The article concludes by highlighting five features of Hebrews that are suggestive of continuing priorities in the work of theological education today.
