Unity in the Midst of Strife

In 2002, 11 Christian communions pledged to live more closely together in expressing their unity in Christ and combating racism through Churches Uniting in Christ. In the midst of war, terrorism, disasters, economic collapse, strident political polarization, and increasing wealth disparity, these church bodies are deepening their relationships and extending their common life. They look forward to a greater public witness of reconciling the baptized and seeking unity with justice.
