A group of theologians met at Lambeth Palace, London in December to review and discuss Anglican involvement in Christian dialogue and encounter with other faiths, and also to remember and celebrate the immense contribution of Bishop Kenneth Cragg. The symposium was arranged by Clare Amos, formerly Director of Theological Studies at the Anglican Communion Office, Rana Khan, NIFCON’s Administrator, and David Thomas, Professor of Christianity and Islam at the University of Birmingham, UK, on behalf of NIFCON (The Anglican Communion Network for Inter-faith Concerns).
