Live from Indy

I first came to the North American Christian Convention in 2006, to support the unity effort between Christian Churches and Churches of Christ on the 100th anniversary of the unofficial split of those two fellowships in 1906. I have come back every year since, in part because the program is quality, and I now have many friends in Christian Churches that I miss if I don't see them. 

Given my heritage in Churches of Christ and enjoyment of our people and gatherings…I wish we could get together more. We could learn a lot from one another. Churches of Christ can learn a ton about leadership, innovation, and the abundance mentality. Christian Churches could benefit from Churches of Christ in a number of ways as well.

We should get together more…on purpose.

Question: Why don't we? Really. Why shouldn't we?
