I worshipping in an area where there are two to three small reformed churches within 10 minutes drive of one another. We drive past one to go to the church we worship at. It pains me to think we have three denominations so close and yet completely isolated. It really seems sad that we often seem to hold on to our distinctives more closely than we do the things we have in common, and all too often resort to fragmenting the church further to resolve issues. I get the impression that breaking down barriers is all good and well as long as "they" join "us" Is it good for us to be so fragmented? So many denominations with so little that separates us? Should anything be done about it? Is it too hard to strive for fewer? Do we leave it in the too hard basket and leave it to our little ones to sort out - assuming something is to be done about it? What would you consider is too much to give up for more unity in he visible church?
