Bridges & Barriers: How can Churches of Christ interact with other Christian groups?

Reader feedback sought for third part of ongoing series encouraging difficult, necessary discussion.

We can’t avoid tough faith questions. Our responses often shape the way a lost and dying world sees Jesus — reflected through us.

That’s how The Christian Chronicle introduced its ongoing, three-part series “Bridges & Barriers.”
Part 1 focused on “Homosexuality and the church,” noting:
As homosexuality gains increasing acceptance in America, Christians can’t escape the headlines.
But how should members of Churches of Christ — who believe God reserves sex for marriage between a man and a woman — respond?
Part 2 explores “Muslims among us” and asks:
Can Churches of Christ engage in meaningful dialogue with the 2.6 million followers of Islam living in the U.S. — without compromising their faith?
Next, in Part 3, we’ll report on interaction among Churches of Christ and other Christian groups. We’ve heard from some church leaders about declining “brand loyalty” to Churches of Christ, particularly among young believers who want to be “Christians only.”
Among our questions for Chronicle readers: How can we, as members of Churches of Christ, relate to those with whom we disagree on doctrine or church organization?  Can we build bridges without compromising the truth?  If so, do you know of specific examples or ways in which this is occurring? 

The Chronicle welcomes and encourages feedback that promotes thoughtful and respectful discussion. Please leave a comment below or feel free to email us.
