Video: A Tribute to the Late Tony Palmer, Friend of Pope Francis

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/28/14

New film highlights progress in dialogue between the Christian churches.

This trailer for the film, "The Brotherhood Found—A Tribute to Tony Palmer," highlights recent progress in dialogue between the Christian churches. At the heart of the film is a message of brotherhood and unity from Pope Francis, addressed to evangelical leaders through the late Tony Palmer. Palmer and Pope Francis were friends. Palmer, a bishop with the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches was married to an Italian Catholic, with whom he founded an inter-denominational community called The Ark. Palmer was killed this past summer in a motorcycle accident in the UK. The film’s creators say they wanted to "pay tribute to a man who was a bridg-builder between our churches" and "to hear from theologians and church leaders who can help us understand the current issues for unity."
