The 2017 National Workshop on Christian Unity will be a very special time. Ecumenists from across the United States will gather in Minneapolis the first week of May to reflect on themes of reformation and church unity. A primary focus will be on commemorating the 500th anniversary of transformational events in the Wittenberg of 1517 that initiated both a series of reforms and tragic tensions among Christians in western Europe. The Workshop will be a time to remember reforms, reformers, and reformations in the life of the Church. And it will be a time to work together on our common journey to heal the wounds of discord and separation so that the world may believe.

For those who have attended National Workshops in the past, they will notice several new features in 2017. Several national denominational leaders will be with us to mark the amazing gifts of reconciliation that we have experienced over the past several decades. These gifts include new relationships among church bodies, as well as new commitments to restoring communion among traditions. A concert around the themes of reform, repentance, and reconciliation will take place during the Workshop.

Attendees will have the opportunity to get out of the hotel and experience ecumenical ministries out in the community. There will be an option to participate in a special tour of ecclesial art and architecture in the Twin Cities. Plenary sessions on-site will highlight new approaches to ecumenical and interreligious engagement. And special plenary sessions are scheduled to bring network representatives together for intentional time to work on current initiatives to serve the people of God.
