Christian Unity

This week is a week of prayer for Christian Unity. I'm a little late to the party, it being Wednesday.
Some interesting bits:

But the social activist impulse in the ecumenical movement has not only put off many theological traditionalists, it has undermined and poisoned the prospects for ecumenical organizations to make real progress.


There should be room in the ecumenical movement for those who have “held the most steadfastly to the deposit of biblical and patristic faith.” The ecumenical movement would do much to reduce the alienation of such folks if it were more circumspect about offering up concrete political and thinly-disguised ideological policy proposals under the rubric of representing the united and universal church.

Meanwhile, American Papist is covering the March for Life. He's beating out the mass media, which appears to ignoring it. Stephen Braunlich mentions the lack of media coverage:
As of 5:00 pm, the Drudge Report has not published a single headline about the March for Life. Evidently 10 people being hurt by turbulence is a bigger story than tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, marching on Washington.
