Progress Toward Unity

June 28, 2006

There is an encouraging article at the Christian Standard about unity efforts in Lubbock, Texas. Quoting from the article:

I know from this experience it is possible to be united in spite of our differences. Such unity does not require the sacrifice of any honest convictions. We at Quaker Avenue are still a non-Sunday school church. And while we are cooperating with the Christian churches in town, we are still an a cappella congregation.

It is true we don’t make the same harsh, legalistic arguments against our brethren on these issues, but loving them does not mean capitulation. We are united in Christ, on the great facts of the gospel, while remaining free to study and interpret the Scripture and its implications for ourselves, as a free congregation in Christ.

It’s great to hear that others are beating the same drum… and are actually doing something about it!


  1. ISWW in Tulsa invited The Christian Churches In, It was so cool and I hope to see more of this in the future.

  2. Hi Milly,I think we’ll continue to see more of this. God is at work.BTW I need to give credit to Phil Spadaro’s article at his Restoration Unity blog for pointing me to the article about Lubbock.

  3. Alan-For those of us who grew up in the non-Sunday School branch of Churches of Christ, unity has been something we have been working at for a long time and Quaker Ave. and their minister, Dave Langford, have been leading this effort. Anyway, thanks for highlighting this. I just got back from the NACC here in Louisville. It was amazing.Kent

  4. Hi!I’ve heard some encouraging news about the NACC this year. When we recognize that there is one Lord, one Faith, and one Baptism, we can do amazing things!
