Like all movements, ecumenism had its beginnings and thus it has a history to be studied. History helps us to see the evolution and growth of The ecumenical movement in seeking to recover the apostolic sense of the early church for unity in diversity while it confronts the frustrations, difficulties, and ironies of the modern pluralistic world. The Division of Christian Unity was created in 1965 "in order that there might be, within the National Council of Churches, a major program division whose primary focus is the unity of God's people." The Division's purpose was "to enable Christians in today's world to discover and express their unity in.
The World Council of Churches is constituted by the churches to serve the one ecumenical movement. It incorporates the work of the world movements for Faith and Order and Life and Work, the International Missionary Council, and the World Council of Christian Education.

This shift in the ecumenical movement resulted in a fundamental different approach to the mis-sion of the church. The ecumenical movement is a grace of God, given by the Father in answer to the prayer of Jesus 35 and the supplication of the Church inspired by the Holy Spirit.36 While it is carried out within the general mission of the Church to unite humanity in Christ, its own specific field is the restoration of unity among Christians.37 Those who are.

The duties were described as administrative responsibilities for the Standing Commission on Ecumenical Relations, day-to-day business with the National and World Councils of Churches, keeping the church at large adequately informed and in touch with all phases of the ecumenical movement, education at diocesan and parish levels, apprising the. In recent times, particularly after the Vatican II Ecumenical Council, there emerges and prevails the ecumenical movement, that is, the consciousness that the Church always finds itself in the. the Church of the Moscow Patriarchate will in future take part in ecumenical work.2 In the following pages I shall discuss the question of whether co-operation between the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate and the World Council of Churches is a genuine possibility and one.
unity of the church has thus been underscored as a matter of credibility for the churches’ witness in society. Here one may infer a tension between ecclesiology and ethics.
