Student Essay Contest
Speakers : Winners of the Contest
Moderator: Elizabeth Ring
Theological students were asked in their 2008 fall semester to submit an essay that drew on the theme, “That they may be one in your hand,” (Ezekiel 37:17) which suggests a move from apostasy to dispersion to redemption and fi nally to unity. The students were to address the ecumenical weaknesses of their own traditions, refl ect on biblical stories that could strengthen their witness to Christian unity, and then propose reforms that would enhance their own church’s ecumenical insight. The essay contest winners from the denominational ecumenical networks will comment on their essays and lead a panel discussion in the seminar on ecumenical reforms.
