Where is the Holy Spirit leading us?

 

“Yet there is no greater freedom than that of allowing oneself to be guided by the Holy Spirit, renouncing the attempt to plan and control everything to the last detail, and instead letting him enlighten, guide and direct us, leading us wherever he wills. The Holy Spirit knows well what is needed in every time and place. This is what it means to be mysteriously fruitful!” (Evangelii Guadium 280)

 

What does the Holy Spirit do? He does something else which some may call division, but it is not. The Holy Spirit creates diversity in the church and the diversity is rich and beautiful. But then the Holy Spirit himself creates unity and so the church is one in diversity. It is a reconciled diversity by the Holy Spirit. He creates both a diversity of charisms and the harmony of charisms.

 

The International Meeting of Kairos is a project born in Bari (Italy), by the charism of the Community of Jesus (Bari), during the Great Jubilee year of 2000. It is based on three decades of ecumenical experience and is a taste of the new breath of the Holy Spirit in the relations between representatives of Chuches and Ecclesial Communities. It is spreading throughout many countries. This is the first year that the International Kairos Conference will be held outside Italy--being hosted this year by Alleluia Community in Augusta, Georgia (USA).

United in Christ

 

United in Christ is an international movement of unity whose mission is to promote the reconciliation of all Christians and Christian Churches who profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Messiah through worship, prayer, preaching, teaching, and interdenominational fellowship and to promote the Christian religion.  These truths are lived out through the power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit emanating from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Therefore, let there be unity in what necessary, freedom in what is unsettled and in all things charity.

 

Matteo Calisi of Bari, Italy is the founder of United in Christ.  It grew out of a movement of reconciliation between Catholics and non-denominational evangelicals in 2006.  This movement became known as "United in Christ".

Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships

 

The Catholic Fraternity was created at the initiative of Pope John Paul II.  He asked Bishop Paul Cordes of the Pontifical Council of the Laity to look for a  group of covenant communities that could be brought into the heart of the church. Bishop Cordes began working with a number of Charismatic Communities belonging to the International Brotherhood of Communities - an ecumenical association of largely Catholic communities - who felt the need to affirm their identity within Charismatic Renewal, strengthen their links with the Church and deepen their communion with the Successor of Peter. A decisive role was played in its establishment by its first President, Brian Smith from Australia and Bobbie Cavnar from Texas

 

On November 30, 1990 the Pontifical Council for the Laity decreed recognition of the Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right.

 

The Catholic Fraternity is 25 years old.  The statutes of the Catholic Fraternity include a strong thirst for ecumenism.

Community of Jesus

 

The Community of Jesus has its headquarters in Bari, Italy.  Bari is a city of historical ecumenical significance and The Community of Jesus was founded in 1983, out of this intentional ecumenical environment and as part of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.  The community now has branches in several countries on several continents. Their charism is especially manifest by bringing about a more perfect reconciliation of Christians.

The Alleluia Community

 

The Alleluia Community is an ecumenical covenant community  which consists of families and singles all living in close proximity to one another with the same common goal: helping each other grow closer to Christ. Alleluia isn't a church, but a community of Protestant and Catholics focusing, not on our differences, but on what we have in common, a goal to grow closer to Christ and share Jesus with others.

 

The Community began in 1973 and has tirelessly worked to help reconciliation in the Body of Christ make progress on the local, national, and international levels.

John 17 Movement

 

The John 17 Movement is a contagious call to all professing Christians to relate together properly, beckoning us to embrace the final prayer of Jesus – “Father, may all who believe in me be one so the world will know you sent me.”  The John 17 Movement seeks to transform cities where Christian leaders from both the church and civic sections can join together in worship, Spirit-led prayer, Scripture engagement, sharing of resources and deep friendship.  Together – reconciled and in unity – we are the church and by God’s grace can be a vital part in the life of our cities.

Toward Jerusalem Council II

 

Toward Jerusalem Council II is a movement--most importantly a movement of prayer.   It began in 1996 and is a movement of unity and reconciliation between the Jewish and Gentile segments of the Church.  It holds that the schism between Jew and Gentile was the original split in the Body of the Messiah, and became the root for all further divisions in the Church throughout the centuries.  The TJCII vision is that one day there will be a second council in Jerusalem, made up of Gentile church leaders, who would recognize and welcome the Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) without requiring them to abandon their Jewish identity and practice.

Charismatic Leaders Fellowship

 

The Charismatic Leaders Fellowship is a unique assembly of leaders first brought together by Father Dennis Bennett in 1971 and consisted of leaders from across the spectrum of the Renewal.  The primary purpose of the group is to build relationships and friendships that will help to bring order and peace in the midst of some of the divisive elements between diverse faith traditions.  Annual meetings are held at venues across the country including Oral Roberts University, Regent University and retreat centers.  Many influential speakers such as John Wimber, Benny Hinn, and Michael Brown have addressed the group at these meetings.
