The paper has been produced by the commission’s Working Group on Transforming Discipleship, which has been engaged since last year in a study process on the document “Arusha call to discipleship" in affirmation of the key place that discipleship holds across all levels of ecumenical work or denominational church work.
The paper "Converting Discipleship: Dissidence and Metanoia” aspires to move churches towards a transformation effected through discipleship. Addressing churches and communities locally, the document aims to inspire them to re-examine and finally re-shape their missional commitment.
The webinar will foster discussion of the new document and offer insights on its future use.
