I also favour "through the Son" because it balances the Spirit's participation in the birth of the Son. I could imagine such an Ecumenical Council being called but the attendance of the post-Reformation Churches could be challenging. I imagine such international Protestant groups attending representing Anglicans, Lutherans, Reformed Churches and the World Council of Churches, but getting the more recent purely Evangelical and Pentecostal churches to attend could be challenging. Mind you there have always been schismatics produced from the Ecumenical Councils. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus The sacred writers have clothed God in a human form, like gleaming amber or fire, and have spoken of its eyes, and ears, and hair, and face, and hands, and wings, and pinions, and arms, and back, and feet. - The Divine Names, 1.8
