The NIC Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships (CUIR - 2012 Discipline ¶ 642)
is committed to seeing that our relationships with other churches and other faiths reflect God’s love that embraces All people into knowing themselves as a household at God’s table. Dr. Martin Luther King drew on the Biblical Greek word oikos, meaning “house,” to say. “We have inherited a big house, a great world house[oikoumene] in which we have to live together- black and white, Easterners and Westerners, Gentiles and Jews, Catholics and Protestants, Moslem and Hindu, a family unduly separated . . . in ideas, culture, and interests who . . . must learn, somehow, in this one big world, to live with each other. This means that more and more our loyalties must become ecumenical [oikoumene].”
