"We have here what might be described as a new Pentecost."
Cecil M. Robeck, Fuller Theological Seminary
"The most important aspect of the forum is that, in deep and direct human encounters, we have found Christ in each other. It has confirmed to me that we are being led by the Holy Spirit to deepen our commitment to unity. This is the hour of His grace, if only we would listen."
Bishop Brian Farrell, Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity
"We believe this table brings greater understanding and breaks stereotypes."
Geoff Tunnicliffe, World Evangelical Alliance
"This wasn't a conference that produced papers. We prayed together. This wasn't a conference that debated doctrines. We shared our faith stories with one another. This wasn't a legislative body that voted, creating winners and losers. We listened to one another. That is why we gathered."
Bishop Jessica Crist, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
"If the Global Christian Forum continues for a couple of decades, this gathering will some day be viewed as a watershed in twenty-first century Christianity."
Larry Miller, Mennonite World Conference
"Some would have said this event is not possible, but here we are."
Rev. Samuel Kobia, World Council of Churches
"The forum enriched my faith and expanded my view of Christian diversity, as I came to a deeper realization that the Christian faith is so much bigger that any one denomination or fellowship."
Bishop James Leggett, Pentecostal World Fellowship
"This meeting has been a milestone, setting an example and suggesting standards for dialogue among Christians. It has built up momentum that will now be felt in many other places."
Rev. John Mathews, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church
"My participation in the forum will help me to understand where other traditions are coming from, and why they do what they do. I had never before had the opportunity to sit and listen to an Orthodox priest, for instance."
Rev. Judy Mbugua, Association of Evangelicals of Africa
