The United Reformed Churches of North America are currently holding their synod in Wyoming, Michigan. I’m not going to comment on everything discussed and decided at this assembly. Instead, I just want to mention one item of interest since I’ve discussed it here many times. On Wednesday, they discussed relations with the Canadian Reformed Churches. According to the press release:
Wednesday morning’s session included an address from a fraternal delegate of the Canadian Reformed Churches encouraging a continued dedication to work toward ecclesiastical unity even while recognizing that obstacles remain on the path to merger. In connection with ecumenicity, an overture seeking to adjust the mandate of CERCU was not adopted. Synod re-affirmed its desire and intention to continue pursuing ecumenical developments with the CanRC acknowledging that formal steps forward will not take place within the next six years.
