This Christianity magazine editorial by John Buckeridge is interesting if you are an observer of church goings-on in the UK. I found it via the Ekklesia article ‘Evangelicals urged to drop the ‘e’ word‘.
It is certainly true that Evangelicals in the UK are different beasts to Evangelicals in the USA. (I am not saying that either are beasts. It is a figure of speech.) Well done to John Buckeridge for raising this thorny issue.
As an aside, you might remember that I wrote about the Evangelical Alliance in a post entitled Christian Unity a month or so back. I was saying something along the lines of ‘Shouldn’t all Christians work together, not just Evangelicals?’ Well, I had a very nice e-mail and letter back, which I don’t think I mentioned here on the blog. And it seems to me that since the last time I looked the Alltogether page on the EA website does seem to read a bit more inclusively. Marvellous.
