Webinar: COVID-19 and the Ongoing Challenges in the Ecumenical Community

Posted on September 21, 2020 by Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Relations

 

As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the world the disease is challenging individuals and societies in new and varied ways. Our social interactions, economic wellbeing, and community engagement have all been strained over the past six months. Churches are also experiencing challenges as they seek to adapt.

The National Council of Churches USA and the Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University are presenting the second in a series of webinars highlighting some of these ecclesial challenges. The discussion will also examine how churches are striving to meet these challenges, as well as the opportunity to do this ministry together.

The webinar will be livestreamed and is free and open to the public, though participants will need to pre-register for the event here. The event will include some time for audience questions and will feature the following speakers:

  • Metropolitan Nathanael of Chicago – Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
  • Kathryn Lohre – Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
  • Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick, III – Christian Methodist Episcopal Church
  • Rev. Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield – General Secretary of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops

We hope you’ll join us on September 30, 2020, 5 pm ET
