This anniversary also encourages us to examine our current context and to look to the future in an effort to find avenues where we can more fully witness together to our common faith in Christ, to work toward Christian unity and work together for the world.Christians in Saskatoon and the surrounding areas are invited to study and dialogue about the Reformation using ‘Together in Christ’, a 5-session study series prepared by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB).The first session will be held Wednesday, September 20th at Zion Lutheran Church. The remaining four sessions will be offered twice a week: at a hosting church in the city during the week; and at Queen’s House Retreat and Renewal Centre on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm with an ecumenical panel of guest speakers.The 500th anniversary will also be marked with an ecumenical worship service to be held at 3:00 p.m. on October 29th, 2017 at the Cathedral of the Holy Family, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon, SK."We have come a long way. 500 years ago the Christian West exploded in multiple fragments through arguments and disagreements. We despised one another, we even killed one another. Then we ignored one another, developing our faith understandings and practices apart from one another. All in the name of Jesus, the embodiment of God’s love and mercy...Slowly we began to realize that Jesus’ command to love and extend mercy applied to other Christians. We began to recognize that Christ’s guiding presence resides in each of our traditions, each according to one’s particular charisms and perspectives. That was a monumental realization, made possible by the rich ecumenical encounters, dialogues and agreements of the past 50 years, all the way from the people in our pews to Popes, Patriarchs and global Archbishops.It’s time to mark this great turning point in ways that open up new avenues towards full visible Christian Unity for our common future in Christ. Join us for five sessions to learn about how far we have come and to celebrate this moment together."
