Methodist-Catholic dialogue covers nature of church

 WASHINGTON — The nature of the church, both local and universal, was the basis for discussion in the latest round of United Methodist-Roman Catholic dialogue.
At the most recent meeting, from Nov 9 to 12 at St Paul’s College here, dialogue team members continued a discussion about the dimensions of communion — or how members of a faith are bound together — in the two traditions; shared a study of a new text from a joint dialogue of the World Methodist Council and the Roman Catholic Church and talked about various challenges and  opportunities in the global and local dimensions of the churches.

The next meeting is scheduled for May 6-8, 2002 in San Pedro, California. — United Methodist News Service.
