    Om Trinity and Ecumenical Church Thought

    Some hundred years from inception, the ecumenical movement is stagnating. William C. Ingle-Gillis argues that the problem lies in modern ecumenisms treatment of denominational Churches as provisional entities requiring reunion to be more fully Christs Body. In a work unique both to ecumenical studies and to trinitarian theology, the author redefines ecclesial life from the premise that Gods essence is personhood-in-communion and that the ultimate calling of human persons is to share as fully in the divine life as Christ himself.Concluding that the Churches are, by the Spirits action, a tangible, dynamic event, wherein God makes visible his on- going reconciliation of the world to himself, Ingle-Gillis argues that the Churches true life lies in coming-together, rather than being-together. This conclusion places ecumenism at the heart of Church life and witness.
