For some years now, the Canadian Reformed Churches and United Reformed Churches have had a relationship of ecclesiastical fellowship. The ultimate goal has always been a federative merger, but so far that goal has proven elusive. Nevertheless, this relationship is unique and close. A press release on the CanRC website gives hope that the relationship is growing closer. On April 3-4, a CanRC Classis Manitoba was held concurrently with a URC Classis Central US. It took place south of the border, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. They met both jointly and separately. From the press release, it appears that everyone agreed it to be a worthwhile ecumenical venture. It’s a first, but hopefully not the last. Let’s pray that such endeavours will see the two federations grow in love for and trust in one another.
