tossed a bombshell into the midst of US church life The clergyman was the Rev Dr Eugene Carson Blake stated clerk of the United Pres byterian Church His bombshell was a surpise proposal to merge four of the n a t i o ns largest Protestant b o d i e United Presby terian Church the Protestant Episcopal Church the Method ist Church and the United Church of Christ FOR YEARS Dr Blake noted church leaders have been deploring the tragic di visions of the Christian family They have been saying that de nominational barriers must be broken down that Christian uniiy must be achieved j All right he said in effect lets quit wringing our hands and do something about it We can begin by combining four denominations into one stro 18million member church which will preserve all of the best aspects of our differen heritages Then we can invite other denominations to unite with us Churchmen who have grown accustomed to snailspace prog ress in the unity movement were flabbergasted by the au dacity of Dr Blakes suggestion Had it come from a man of less eminence it probably would have been brushed off as impossibly Utopian But Eugene Carson Blake can not be dismissed as a visionary amateur He is the

two Presbyterian bodies As a for mer president of the National Council of Churches he has been intimately associated with efforts to achieve a measure of unity among churches by means short of organic union DR BLAKE knows as well as anyone that there are immense obstacles to the fourway mer ger he has proposed But he also knows that these obstacles can be surmounted if the moti vation is strong enough That was proved in India where the same four denomina IFTS have come to the Christmas Cheer Fund from clubs circles la bor union groups as well as individ uals near and far All express a

church Dr Blake believes that America as in India the tim has come when we can n longer afford the luxury of on divisions Denominationalism is indee a costly luxury To maintain their separate administrativ bureaucracies their endlessly duplicated boards agencies and programs churches are spend ing hundreds of millions of dol lars that might be better in vested in their central mission of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ BUT THE spiritual cost o disunity is even greater than the financial cost As Dr Blake pointed out many people have come to look upon the Chris tian churches as competing so cial groups pulling and hauling propagandizing and pressuring for their own organizational ad vantages This spectacle does not attract people It is a poor way of bearing witness to the prince of peace who said that all men would be able to recog nize his disciples by the fact that they loved one another Denominational leaders have promised to give Dr Blakes proposal serious considera tion Many a bold idea has been considered to death in the past This attempt to achieve a real breakthrough toward Christian unity is unlikely to get anywhere unless it receives prompt vocal
