For seven days this July, Fuller Professor of Church History and Ecumenics Cecil (Mel) Robeck Jr. co-chaired a dialogue between two major movements in Christianity. Part of a goodwill endeavor that began in 1972, this summer’s gathering was the fifth session of the sixth phase of the International Catholic-Pentecostal Dialogue.
Originally founded to “promote Christian unity,” the ongoing discussion brings together Christian thinkers, teachers, and pastors from the Catholic Church and many Pentecostal denominations to discover their common ground and gain further understanding of each other. Dr. Robeck has been participating in the dialogue since 1985.
