Christian Ecumenism in an Interfaith World
Atlantic School of Theology’s Lecture Series continues on Monday, November 5, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. The 2007 Paul Wattson Lecture will take place at McNally Auditorium, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, with guest lecturer The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Crow, Jr., distinguished scholar and leader in the worldwide ecumenical movement. Dr. Crow will speak on Christian Ecumenism in an Interfaith World.
In addition to his early parish and campus ministry with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), The Rev. Dr. Paul A.

Here in North America, he served (1974-1998) on the Executive Committee of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, and as the first General Secretary (1968-1974) and then as a member of the Executive committee (1974-1998) of the Consultation on Church Union.
Paul Crow is among the major ecumenical leaders of the Twentieth-Century and on the eve of his ‘retirement’ in 1997 he was presented with a collection of thirty essays by world leaders in the ecumenical movement and titled “A Vision of Christian Unity: A Life Given to the Ecumenical quest.”
The Paul Wattson Lecture is co-sponsored annually by Atlantic School of Theology and The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, in co-operation with Saint Mary’s University, Halifax. This lecture is free and open to the public; all are welcome.
