On interreligious dialogue
The Episcopal Church teaches us to “affirm the foundational Gospel proclamation that ‘Jesus is Lord
(I Corinthians12:3), and therefore the Summary of God's Law: ‘love the Lord your God with all your hearts, with all your souls, and with all your minds, and to love your neighbor as yourself’ (Mark 12:29-31; Book of Common Prayer, Catechism, page 851). For this reason we reach out in love and genuine openness to know and to understand those of other religions.”
Therefore, we commend to all our members of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe to engage in dialogues for building relationships, the sharing of information, religious education, and celebration with people of other religions as part of our life together in Christ.
One resource for thinking about and acting on the need to know our neighbor of another faith: The Theological Statement on Interreligious Relations This Episcopal Church statement was adopted by resolution of the 76th General Convention of the Episcopal Church (Anaheim, California)
