The Living Church Foundation and Nashotah House are hosting a national conference from June 6 to 9, 2017, in Wisconsin, in advance of the Lambeth Conference, a major Anglican event. Nashotah House Theological Seminary and the Living Church Foundation (livingchurch.org) have teamed up to host a major international conference on the identity and mission of the Christian Church and the vocation of Anglicanism. Entitled “Living Sacrifices,” the conference will explore the complex connections between repentance, reconciliation, and renewal in the life of the Church, with particular attention to the history of Anglicanism and discernments about the future of the Anglican Communion.
“As we prepare for the 2020 Lambeth Conference, this conference at Nashotah House is poised to help focus not only the right questions for the Lambeth Conference but also indicate coherent ways forward for the Communion,” said Dr. Christopher Wells, Executive Director of the Living Church Foundation. “100 years ago, Lambeth 1920 launched an ‘Appeal to All Christian People’ that was heard round the world and helped to set the agenda both for Anglicans and the wider ecumenical movement. With the Anglican Covenant in hand, Lambeth 2020 has a chance to do something similar, with farther-reaching, longer-lasting consequences.”
The conference grows out of the mission of Nashotah House, currently celebrating the 175th anniversary of its founding, as a community of formation marked by the fullness of Anglican faith and practice, Benedictine spirituality, and classical Christian thought and teaching. The conference also fits with the Living Church’s mission to seek and serve the Catholic and evangelical faith of the one Church, to the end of visible Christian unity throughout the world.
