Christian identity and religious plurality

An exchange between the archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, Dr Anna May Chain from Myanmar and Dr Assaad Kattan from Lebanon helps participants in today's plenary reflect on and discuss religious plurality and its implications, the significance of Christian identity in different cultures and contexts, and the connection between self-understanding and witness in religiously plural situations.

Spiritual life

Today's variant of the Assembly prayer is "God, in your grace, transform our societies". The scripture readings, Acts 10:9-35 and Jonah 4:1-11, are about attitudes towards the "other", and suggest that "God shows no partiality", loving all of us equally. The symbol for today's worship is incense.
