This article in Christianity Today is one of the most exciting things I’ve read (other than the Bible) in a very long time. The churches — all denominations — in Buenos Aires, Argentina are uniting to do evangelism, do benevolence — even to send missionaries.
The denominations are dying. This is the model for how to do church in the 21st Century.
I’ve been talking about this idea for a while.
The idea here is for all the churches in town to form a coalition that allows the churches in a community to be the church in that community. As the leaders of the Buenos Aires churches discovered, it’s biblical.
Competition among churches, envy of sister congregations, and division are not.
