Discussion Paper on the Role of the Worldwide Moravian Unity

The 43rd Unity Synod of the worldwide Moravian Church (Unitas Fratrum) passed a resolution recommending the dissemination and study of a paper on the role of the worldwide Moravian Unity by all Provinces. The resolution reads:

Resolution US2016.56: Discussion Paper on the Role of the Worldwide Moravian Unity

  • Be it resolved that the committee has studied the discussion paper with interest and recommends that the paper be disseminated to the Provinces, Unity Committees and Unity Desks for further study and discussion and that the reports of the study and discussion be submitted to the Unity Committee on Theology (UCOT), and be it further
  • Resolved that the UCOT shares the results of the discussions, after further refinement, with the Unity Board.

At UCOT’s request, we are providing all congregations in the Northern Province with this study guide, A Discussion Paper on the Role of the Worldwide Moravian Unity. We request that all congregations review this document in group settings, contemplate the discussion questions, and provide a report to the Provincial Elders’ Conference highlighting your thoughts on the paper and the role of the worldwide Unity. Your feedback will be compiled and shared with UCOT.

If possible, please complete your review of this material by December 2017.

Thank you for your cooperation.
