Embodied integrity: realizing the Holy Spirit via the social field in ecumenical conversation
Russell L Meyer
Ecumenical conversations can lead to collective actions by incorporating the principles and methods of social field theory, interpersonal neurobiology and behavioral economics. Building on the Trinitarian work of Thomas Weinandy, this conversational process is shown to be the work of the Holy Spirit in realizing new forms of Christian unity and public witness to the will of God. The conversational process was used to facilitate the 2012 annual meeting of Christian Churches Together in the USA in its discernment of how to address the 50th anniversary of the Letter from the Birmingham Jail by Martin Luther King, Jr.
