‘No Church-dividing Obstacles’

Richard J. Mammana, Jr., and Glen Alton Messer II write in a brief communiqué for the Episcopal Church-United Methodist Dialogue Committee on Full Communion:

Building on an earlier committee’s affirmation that there are no church-dividing obstacles to the ratification of a full communion relationship, the Dialogue Committee received an internal document entitled Assist Us to Proclaim the Gospel: A Proposal for Full Communion. The Dialogue Committee committed itself to study of the existing full communion relationships enriching the life of each church, and looked in particular at a 2014 document proposing the recognition of a full communion relationship between United Methodists and the Northern and Southern provinces of the Moravian Church.

The two-page communiqué follows.
