The 30th Ecumenical Mission of Strathcona County

Our Mission Speaker this year is the Rev. Canon Dr. Scott Sharman, Animator for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations for the Anglican Church of Canada and the Ecumenical Officer and Canon Theologian for the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton

(Please see the Speaker tab for more details about our speaker this year)

This year’s Ecumenical Mission is titled “Interfaith Intersections”, and is being led by the Rev. Dr. Scott Sharman. Interfaith conversations are an important reality in our increasingly diverse world. This October, Dr. Sharman will be exploring several questions in this regard: First, he will be looking at the scriptural, theological, and historical reasons why Christians need to be having these encounters. Second, he will be talking about the way these interfaith interactions have something to teach us about Christian ecumenical conversations. As it turns out, there are many ‘intersections’ between these two paths of dialogue, with gifts to be given and received in both directions. Come and find out more at this month’s Ecumenical Mission.
