 USING ECUMENICAL EDUCATION TO HARMONISE NIGERIAN CITIZENS

ABSTRACT

Ecumenical education gears towards accepting or practicing ecumenism which is tolerance for other religions. There are many segregations and turmoils in the world as a result of inability to use the spirit of empathy and see your neighbor as yourself. There have been religious clashes in Nigeria because the Christians and Muslim don’t want to compromise or understand themselves. Religion is responsible for moral values but also responsible for discrimination and violence all over the world. This study recommends ecumenical education as the basis for harmonizing Nigerian citizens.
