From Breakthrough to Breakthrough
Arts and Humanities | Christianity | Religion
Trained to make sense of the past, I am accustomed to citing sources. When I write about the future I discover that the footnote is simultaneously a straitjacket from which I am released and a safety net of which I am deprived. My reflections on the future of the ecumenical movement are, like all prophecy, more hortatory than descriptive. I will say what I would like to see happen. In so doing I implicitly encourage readers to do what they can to make the future turn out this way.
