Trend Is Toward Religious Unity THIS paragraph out of a recent report on Church Unity in America prepared by our editor ial research agency in Washington D C comes under the head of Good News so far as 1 am con cerned The movement for consolidation of religious bodies has made more progress since World War IIboth in the United States and abroad than during any corresponding period of modernhistory Its gains of the last half dozen years have been accompanied by substantial increases in for vir all denominations This is most gratifying to me for the reason that for a long time I have looked upon fragmentation and creedal differences as the principal handicap of our Western civilization in its lifeanddealh struggle with Communism This fragmentation is graphical ty reflected in the fact that in the United States at this moment there lire 256 different denominationsor sects In the city where I live theres an average of one church for every one thousand people Some of the major denominations I should explain by wayof keep ing things straight however are represented by more than one church Main Divisions In the matter of religion this Western civilization to which I have referred is divided into three prin cipal compartments JudaismRo man Catholicism and Protestant ism Each stems back to the same small area at the eastern end of the Mediterranean and theres a common bond in their acceptance of the Old Testament of the Bible There are three branches of the Jewish faith Orthodox Conserv ative and Reform Judaism Their differences lie chiefly in ritual so cial i background of the congrega tions and the time ofarrival of their members in7thiscountry The points of similarity among the are eyer so muchmore pro nounced and fundamental t As one writer on the subject Bernard Harrison has put it In all three of the three Jew ish branches a common core of identity is reflected They all hold to the same doctrine of ethical Ike Tries for Harmony in Tafts Home

draw from the same historical sources They observe by and large the same festivals and hayc the same basic prayers Unity Already Achieved Moving on to the Roman Cath olic Church we recognize at once that there isa complete and un mistakable oneness within that faith The authority of the Vatican is not questioned in either doctrinal or organizational matters The ofjjin decisions fice of the Pope is more than a SYMBOL of Catholic the FACT of Catholic unity Soby a process of examination and elimination we find that the real problem of moving toward unity if it is a problem is to be found among the churches loosely classifiable as Protestant Its inthis area that most of the postwar progress to which I have already referred has been done The unity movement among the Protestant churches follows two distinct paths 1 Cooperation on social pro grams with complete autonomy of the separate denominations 2 Actual merging of existing churches into a single body or ganic fusion Because this latter can be at tained only when there is full agreement on disputed points of doctrine ritual liturgy and other ecclesiastic matters it would be unrealistic to assume that sweep tng results arc going to be had overnight At the least it will be a long road and with many turn tags Points Agreement Stressed And while that long quest for ac trial merger or organic fusion pro ceeds the program designed to ac centuate the points of common in terest between the churches all the churches is being pushed forward Its being discovered that those points o agreement even be tween faiths assumedly most dis Similar are more numerous and more important than the points of conflict Progress in this direction took a long stride forward back in 1928 when the Conference of Christians and Jews came
