Diversity in Church Unity week
Once upon a time we thought the only true religion was to be found in the Catholic Church. It is quite natural to think that our way of doing things is better than others. But gradually a realisation has spread widely that diversity is an important thing in all fields of life and experience. The Pope tells us to dialogue with each other. The churches of the Reformation have taught us the importance of careful listening to the Word of God in the bible. Perhaps Congregationalists give us a needed warning to avoid the clerical love of power and control. This week we try to take Ecumenism seriously. We will register our commitment in the Unity service this evening in St Paul's church Woodford Bridge at 6.30 pm.
