The Christian Unity Summit, held January 10-11 in Baltimore, brought together 27 church leaders from African American, Catholic, Evangelical, historic Protestant, Orthodox and Pentecostal perspectives. Many of the church communions participate in at least one of four ecumenical organizations: Christian Churches Together in the USA (CCT), Churches Uniting in Christ (CUiC), the National Council of Churches (NCC), and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). Two Disciples ecumenical leaders, the Rev. Michael Kinnamon and the Rev. Richard L. Hamm, envisioned the gathering as a way of broadening the conversation about Christian unity. The ad hoc summit was convened by the invitation of Cardinal William Keeler, archbishop emeritus of Baltimore.
