TIRANA, Albania: Ahmedabad Diocese Metropolitan Pulikkottil Dr Geevarghese Mar Yulios is off to Tirana, capital of Albania in the Southeastern Europe to attend Orthodox-Evangelical Consultation of Senior Leaders at Albania from September 2 to 6.
The five-day meeting of senior leaders at the Monastery of St Vlash, Albania, is being hosted by His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios of Albania from the The Lausanne-Orthodox Initiative of The Lausanne Movement.
A group of 40 experienced practitioners and missiologists from different traditions will over four days of consultations tackle new paths of understanding, respect, and mutuality in mission.
The participants, who will be attending in their own personal capacities, will represent Oriental, Eastern Orthodox and Evangelical Christian traditions. Each of them have been chosen because of their known commitment to mission and the building of relationships of trust with Christians from other traditions.
On September 3 after Bible Reflection and Prayer, Dr Mar Yulios will form part of a discussion on Four Cameos of contemporary mission along with Archbishop Makarios, Rev K P Johnson and Dr Kosta Milkov.
On behalf of His Grace, Bishop Angaelos El Anba, Head of the Coptic community in Britain, and Mrs Grace Mathews, Vice-Chair of the Lausanne Movement, Revd Canon Mark Oxbrow, Lausanne Senior Associate for Orthodox-Evangelical Relations, has extended the invite to the Ahmedabad Diocese Metropolitan. ~ LC
