It is an informational and educational group which will be sent to persons who confront each others in peacefull way and belong to different churches, in different countries. The word Ecumenic comes from old Greek οἰκουμένη, intermidiate past participle of the verb οἴκω, meaning “to live” or “to settle”: οἰκουμένη (γή) was used in old Greek to show that part of the World that mankind habited and knew. In other words, Ecumenic means “the house where all people live”.
“Ecumenic” is a group to support Peace, Justice and the preservation of the World. We are looking for a new social Theology, in a constant effort to improve the present life, the human rights and dialogue among different religions.

In the outlook of the “universal priesthood of believers” we wonder chiefly how live the Faith, without exclusion. All are welcome! We appreciate the Quakers.
We are opened to dialogue and confrontation with other existing confessions and with non-believers. It has been established in 1999 in Italy , it doesn’t receive any funds from parties or religious associations.
It publishes articles translated in english besides a wide range of press release documents of different no- profit organizations linked to our group. This is a forum for the member too.

This message is dedicated to Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
“We must act and dare the appropriateness and not whatever comes to our mind
not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be
freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind
obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it,
freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong,
Obedience performs blindly
but Freedom is wide awake
Freedom wants to know why,
Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive
obedient man respects God’s commands
and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands.
Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability
(Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
