I predict this means there will soon be three ministerial associations in my town.

You probably haven't heard of the group, Christian Churches Together in the USA (CCT) . . . but you will.

Five years in the making, CCT includes 36 separate denominations with over 100 million members in each of the five major "families" of American Christianity:
  • Catholic,
  • Evangelical,
  • Pentecostal,
  • Mainline Protestant,
  • and Orthodox.
And yes, this group has been working hard to include "ethnic" churches in each of these groups.

The goal? Finding a way to combine the "liberal" emphasis on social justice with a "conservative" emphasis on personal morality.

Hey Greg--

I didn't know there were any Christian groups that were that concerned about personal morality any more.

Hope you are doing great--!!
