A Gardner-Webb University instructor of Christian theology recently participated as a keynote speaker in a discussion on ecumenism held at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., as part of a four-year series of events with the theme “Celebrating the Legacy of Vatican II.” Dr. Steve Harmon was one of several internationally-recognized theologians and clergy members from around the country who took part in a conversation on ecumenism during last month’s symposium. Unitatis Redintegratio, the Decree on Ecumenism coming out of the Second Vatican Council, was the subject of a discussion between keynote speakers Harmon, William Rusch, D.Phil., of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Yale Divinity School; and the Rev. John Crossin, Ph.D., a priest in the order of the Oblates of St. Francis De Sales and a member of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
