Presiding Bishop Frank T. Griswold will serve as principal celebrant at the annual William Reed Huntington sermon and dinner at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in New York City.
This annual tradition, in honor of Huntington, will be held on January 18, at 6 p.m. Huntington was rector of Grace Episcopal Church, Manhattan, and author of the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral of 1888. The Quadrilateral is the document upon which all ecumenical dialogue between the Episcopal Church and other Christian churches has been based.
This year, the achievement of full communion between the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will be the focus of the celebration.
Along with Griswold, the Rt. Rev. Mark S. Hanson, Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, will preach the sermon.
Also participating will be Bishop Stephen P. Bouman of the ELCA Metropolitan Synod, Bishop Mark S. Sisk of the Episcopal Diocese of New York; the Rev. Canon J. Robert Wright, professor of ecclesiastical History at General Theological Seminary and president of the Anglican Society; and the Rev. J. Donald Waring, rector of Grace Church, who will bring the loving cup which was presented to Huntington as a symbol of the continuing legacy of this visionary preacher and churchman.
The event is co-sponsored by the Anglican Society, St. Peter's Lutheran Church and the Ecumenical Commission of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, chaired by the Rev. Paul Clayton.
