An Ecumenical Response to "A Common Word Between Us and You"

October 8, 2008
Part of the global conversation surrounding the landmark statement A Common Word Between Us and You, this response by the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) highlights areas of common ground while also noting areas of real difference. These include the interpretation of God's oneness found in the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, as well as the complex responsibilities and tensions that accompany the command to "love your neighbor." The NCC also describes its renewed commitment to interfaith dialogue as embodied in the National Muslim-Christian Initiative. The response closes with a pledge to reject violence and work towards peace and friendship between the two communities. The document is the product of a year-long study process coordinated by the NCC's Interfaith Relations Commission and Faith and Order Commission.
