Christian unity in action

Body: 

Responding to comments by church leaders carried in the Church Times and Baptist Times regarding Christian Unity Jonathan Bartley, co-director of the thinktank Ekklesia and author of the book Faith and Politics After Christendom said: “Post-Christendom is clearly bringing with it new forms of co-operation between Christians based not on theology or doctrine, but on action and the way they live. In many respects, this resonates with the experience of early Christians, who saw their faith far more in terms of what they did.

“The political and social expression of faith in particular will increasingly be a focus around which Christians come together, as we have seen for example around campaigns against climate change and to end debt in the developing world.”
