Ecumenical Challenges

Journal of the Gudina Tumsa Theological Forum 3

Samuel Yonas Deressa, editor

Gudina Tumsa Theological Forum 2013

This journal includes the proceedings of the Gudina Tumsa Theological Forum held at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota, April 12-13, 2013. It also includes other documents from previous forums held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on similar or related and relevant issues.

Gudina Tumsa was involved in numerous ecumenical conversations with churches around the world and wrote of the importance of ecumenical relationships. It is impossible to understand the history of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY) without giving due consideration to the contribution of its ecumenical partners. One of the major challenges of this church is related to ecumenical relationships, specifically the nature of the relationship between Western churches and the churches in the Global South.

The Gudina Tumsa Theological Forums, designed as a memorial to the life and work of Gudina Tumsa, were begun under the auspices of the Gudina Tumsa Foundation. The Theological Focum lectures focus on the continuing development of the theology of the church in Ethiopia. The 2013 forum was designed to create a platform for theologians of the EECMY as they reflect on the developing mission of the church from multiple perspectives. It also allowed former American and European missionaries to Africa to join the discussion about contemporary theological thoughts and insights.

Gudina Tumsa was General Secretary of the EECMY from 1966 until his death at the hands of the Marxist dictatorship on July 28, 19979. Gudina's witness was confirmed by his uncompromising stance on behalf of justice and truth, and heightened by his death for his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
