NWCU convenes in Columbus, Ohio, on April 8-11, 2013
The 2013 National Workshop on Christian Unity gathered in Columbus, Ohio, in April under the theme, "What Does God Require of Us?" A special focus was the ecumenical legacy of the Second Vatican Council. One of the multiple seminars looked at the Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha, Nebraska, with a Muslim imam, an Episcopalian priest, and a Reform Jewish lay leader presenting. (See a video of their panel at a Episcopal network's session at the NWCU.) Another seminar focused on the challenge to religious and gang culture in prison through interfaith communities and restorative justice. Local planning was chaired by Presbyterian minister Rebecca Tollefson, the executive director of the Ohio Council of Churches. Paul Masquelier, also a PC(USA) minister, serves as the communications director of the National Planning Committee.
