Spike, from Arend van Leeuwen to Metropolitan Nicodim of Leningrad, from Betty Thompson to Harvey Cox, and from Richard Shaull to Konrad Raiser the ideological echoes have continued.

In order to make a case for the universality of their message, Christians could no longer contradict one another or appear as members of splinter groups whose peculiarities and differences were rooted merely in the history of Western world.
Inevitably, Christians began asking whether they had the right simply to destroy the world of the other religions, or whether it was not possible, or even imperative, to understand the other religions from within and integrate their inheritance into Christianity.
We discuss interreligious ecumenism today against the backdrop of a world that, while it draws ever closer together, becoming more and more a single theater of human history, is convulsed by wars, torn apart by growing tensions between rich and poor, and radically threatened by the misuse of man's technological power over the planet.

 Talk:Christian ecumenism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I am surprised in an article on Christian Ecumenism that I do not find any reference to ecumenical dialogue, to the models of Church unity that have been promoted, or to the historical efforts at unity.
To describe them as ecumenism (or approaches to ecumenism) is tantamount to choosing one model of unity over all others.
Ecumenism is nothing if not the attempt to sort through the problem of the clash of perspectives, and as such it is a problem of problem domains that are exclusive of one another.

 C.S. Lewis's Views on Christian Unity & Ecumenism
Speaking to thousands of people he said Christians had to return to the unity of the first millennium, before Christianity was split by the east-west schism of the 11th century and the Protestant Reformation of the 16th.
In other words, the ony "ecumenism" that seems to "work" in a practical sense is the liberal version of it, where groups give up their distinctives and thus find it easier to unite (as in the "United" denominations, which invariably came about as denominations were forsaking their distinctive traditions, not pursuing and defending them).

 Christian ecumenism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Christianity, for the Eastern Orthodox, is simply the Church; and the Church is simply Orthodoxy in the sense expressed by Holy Tradition - nothing less, and nothing else.
Some might think it ironic, that the first obstacle to the full unity of dogmatic Christianity is religious pluralism, which to some extent has goals that are antithetical to dogmatic ecumenism.
