November 1-2, 2018:  Anglo-Catholic Roots II: Is Christ Divided? Full Visible Unity

As the Anglican Communion prepares for the Lambeth Conference in 2020, leaders are asking fundamental questions about the Church and her unity with renewed urgency but often with little understanding. Where may the Church be found, and in what does her unity consist? Are divisions between churches defensible, and how may they be repaired? “Is Christ divided?” (1 Cor. 1:13).

The Catholic tradition specializes in this field, with a rich store of resources worth remembering and retrieving. Speakers at this second conference on “Anglo-Catholic roots” will take up scriptural, sacramental, ascetical, and dogmatic resources to describe and vindicate a fully Catholic understanding of the one Church, as Christ’s body across time and space. They will also offer perspectives on the Anglican Communion as a family of churches called to holiness and apostolicity in service of the Whole.
