This will never make the headlines: The Protest is Over! We’re all Catholic!

“In 1999, the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant Lutheran Church signed an agreement that brought an end to the protest” (3:30 in the short video)

I was discussing this video with some folks I met at the University of Dallas Ministry Conference this past weekend. It is one of the most exciting things I have ever seen. In order to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the history of the interwebs, I am re-posting it here and hopefully will continue to re-post links to this video.

Unfortunately, shortly after this video became well known, Bishop Palmer died in a motorcycle accident.

Here is the full video. It is 45 minutes long, but it is well worth the time it takes to give him your attention.

 

You may need to watch this abbreviated piece to convince you that you need to watch the whole thing. So, here’s the short version.

For those interested in the document, here is a link to the full text:
