Dr. Albert (Pete) Pero's dreams have always been big, so I was not surprised when his last sabbatical request (for a leave in Winter/Spring 2002) listed three major projects, which I suspect set the agenda not only for the limited time frame of that sabbatical leave but for the future adventures of his productive life. The working title of one of these projects, "Ecumenism: The Vocation of the Theologian/Minister within the World House," came to mind immediately when I was asked to give a title for this tribute. In particular, the phrase "world house" caught my attention. Pete's theological imagination has been inspired in no small measure by the work of Martin Luther King, Jr., in whose company he struggled on behalf of God's dream of freedom and equality for all and whose theological legacy he continues to teach LSTC students. In his project proposal for "Ecumenism: The Vocation of the Theologian/Minister in the World House," Pete quoted from King's final major writing, Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?
