Ecumenical summit at the Sigtuna Foundation
The 37th ecumenical meeting of bishops, friends of the Focolare Movement will take place at the Sigtuna Foundation, Sweden from 6 to 9 November 2018. It will focus on listening to the voice of the Spirit in a world that faces ecumenical and present-day challenges. The participants attending this meeting belong to 12 Christian Churches and come from 18 different countries. Participants from Sweden are among others, Archbishop Antje Jackelén, Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop Åke Bonnier and Alf Linderman, Executive Director of the Sigtuna Foundation.
– In times when hate and distrust prevails, and political leaders can speak about and act against their opponents in ways almost unheard of in modern times, it is important that the Christian churches and their leaders despite their differences can stand up for unity and mutual respect. That will also make it possible for Churches to support a more positive development of our societies, says Alf Linderman, Executive Director of the Sigtuna Foundation.
