Two ongoing forums at this year’s Bible Lectureship will address hot issues among Churches of Christ.
One forum, “Continuing Conversations with the International Churches of Christ,” will begin at 3:15 p.m. Monday through Wednesday in Room 114 of the Onstead-Packer Biblical Studies Building. The main focus of the forum will be to continue an atmosphere of reconciliation between International Churches of Christ and mainline Churches of Christ, said Dr. Jack Reese, dean of the College of Biblical Studies and a speaker at the forum.
“We will try to address the real differences and the areas we have in common,” Reese said. “There are real differences between our fellowships, and no one wants to wallpaper over those.”
Dr. Mark Love, director of Ministry Events, said this year’s forum will follow up on what has happened in the past year.
Last year, the forum had to be moved from University Church of Christ to Moody Coliseum because of the high interest in the topic.
“Last year we broke the pressure bubble,” Love said.
