I want to situate my challenge first in the framework of the wider ecumenical movement.
That is to ask how AIF relates to the ecumenical movement.
Does the history of AIF largely reflect the patterns of the wider ecumenical movement with its strengths and weaknesses or does it also challenge these patterns?
Here I have a kind of personal confession to make. As many of you know, I was a regular participant in the first meetings of AIF at Spode House.
In my sharing on Saturday, I mentioned how I moved from a phase of considerable involvement in "mainline ecumenism" to a phase of growing involvement in "Pentecostal-charismatic ecumenism".
