2016 will see the first ecumenical council in 1200 years

At least on the Orthodox side.

Patriarchs of the world’s 250 million Orthodox Christians ended a rare summit in Istanbul on Sunday calling for a peaceful end to the crisis in Ukraine and denouncing violence driving Christians out of the Middle East. Twelve heads of autonomous Orthodox churches, the second-largest family of Christian churches, also agreed to hold an  ecumenical council of bishops in 2016, the first in over 1,200 years.

Some believe this may actually bring about a communion between the West and the East. The Pope and the Filioque is not soon to depart, I suspect… so the East may need to do some changing.
