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.

Faith and Order, Part II

Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2009

Well, it's been about 22 hours since I got up this morning in Crete. I'm now safely in a hotel in Chicago, and about five minutes from pajamas and and a full night's sleep.

The next three days, I'll do the same ecumenical work again, only this time with the Faith and Order Commission in the United States. We'll have neither the weather nor the food of Crete here in Chicago, but I think I'll probably get more rest than I've had the past week.

On my flights today, I've tried to write some more blog entries to sum up the Crete part of my adventure. I have about four different beginnings, but no conclusions yet. I'll continue to post about the Chicago meeting, but I hope to do some further reflecting on the last days in Crete, too.

Thanks for reading!
