Halstead Leads Retreat For Stone-Campbell Dialogue
By Frank Guertin on 11/12/2012
On November 10-11, Dr. Jackie Halstead led a weekend event for the Stone-Campbell Dialogue. For twelve years now the group has gathered leaders from across the country representing Churches of Christ, Disciples of Christ, and Christian Churches. This year the Dialogue team invited young pastors from each heritage to join them in a spiritual retreat.
The Stone-Campbell Dialogue brings together the three streams of the Restoration Movement that tie their origins to Thomas and Alexander Campbell and Barton Warren Stone. These three are the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Churches of Christ, and Christian Churches/Churches of Christ. Begun in 1999, the Dialogue is an effort to bring healing and understanding to the rifts between our families. The goal is to develop relationships and trust within the three streams of the Stone-Campbell Movement through worship and through charitable and frank dialogue"that the world may believe.
