From Thomas C. Goodhart
I found Jeff Monroe’s post Merge! both thought and emotionally provoking. Coincidentally—or in this forum perhaps I should say providentially—the news media have been reporting on the recent sale of Edvard Munch’s The Scream, which I find maybe only tangentially connected, but connected nonetheless.
But first to Jeff’s task: “I believe the Christian Reformed Church in North America and the Reformed Church in America should merge. Please tell me why they shouldn’t.”
Before I could even begin to explore this I wonder two other questions: Firstly, why should we merge? Secondly, and probably more importantly, what does it mean to be Reformed Church in America?
