One Church, indivisible: Aimee's blog from Crete

Once every five years or so, a group of about 120 men and women, pastors, laypersons, academics, and church leaders get together to talk about the issues that still divide the churches. It's called the Faith and Order Plenary Commission, and its next meeting will take place at the Orthodox Academy of Crete, Greece, 7-13 October 2009.oac

This year, I've been invited to go. 

And I'm writing a blog.

Watchful eyes

Sunday, Oct. 11, 2009

On Saturday night, the African delegates led worship. The sermon, offered by a professor and pastor from Cameroon, was chockful of brilliant one-liners, too many to remember. But the one that will stick with me for some time was about suffering and oppression:

"God's people are dying under the watchful eyes of the church."
