FELLOWSHIP DINNER IN PHOENIX 2017
In oct 2017 the John 17 movement hosted a dinner at a privately owned ranch in Phoenix Arizona. There were around two hundred Christian leaders present representing Roman Catholic and Protestant churches. The atmosphere radiated with joy. Like a long overdue family reunion. People meeting each other for the first time acknowledging our family ties as brothers and sisters in the one body of Christ. There were moving messages regarding the need for all of us to recognize the part we have played in the scandal of division. Pope Francis sent a message thanking us for continuing to walk on the path friendship, seeking to do our part of ending this scandal that pains our lord and hinders our witness of the Gospel. Our evening ended by worshiping and praying together for Jesus’s prayer that we be one to become a reality displayed in the valley of the Sun. ( Phoenix Arizona.
