We belong to a worldwide church – learnings from the Synod for the Amazon.
“Although the Synod of Bishops for the Amazon has particular geographical relevance, the ideas brought forward can apply, with appropriate adaptations, to other local churches. Seven themes were addressed: (1) new pathways for the Church in the Amazon region; (2) interculturality in a missionary context; (3) ministries in the Church; (4) listening to our shared home, the earth; (5) the urban reality of many faith communities; (6) the preservation of water; (7) other issues that arose.”
Building community, nurturing belonging - whose responsibility?
“The faithful are called where possible to worship together in community. Given the acute shortage of priests in some parts of the world, it is necessary to envisage possible new ways of “being Church”, or of living out one’s faith commitment in community. How can the faith of our communities be sustained? What are some of the possibilities we can see on the horizon?”
