Resolution 20 - Inter-faith Dialogue

Resolution 20

Inter-faith Dialogue

This Conference commends dialogue with people of other faiths as part of Christian discipleship and mission, with the understanding that:

(1) dialogue begins when people meet each other; (2) dialogue depends upon mutual understanding, mutual respect and mutual trust; (3) dialogue makes it possible to share in service to the community; (4) dialogue becomes a medium of authentic witness.

Acknowledging that such dialogue, which is not a substitute for evangelism, may be a contribution in helping people of different faiths to make common cause in resolving issues of peacemaking, social justice and religious liberty, we further commend each province to initiate such dialogue in partnership with other Christian Churches where appropriate.
