A Roadmap for Christian Unity

From disagreements about baptism to a tendency toward tribalism, it’s easy to feel like the state of American Christianity is best summed up in the word division. But does that have to be the case?

On this episode of The Russell Moore Show, Russell and producer Ashley Hales answer listener questions on finding a church, theological disagreements, and living out Christian beliefs in the workplace. They talk about partnering across divisions and the belonging that can be born of joining a church community—even when it’s imperfect. 

Questions addressed during this episode include:

  • How should someone who feels like American Christianity is a tribe that doesn’t accept them find a church?
  • Why did Russell say on an episode of The Bulletin that 2022 was the end of an era for complementarianism? 
  • How can churches that disagree on issues like women’s roles or baptism partner together? 
  • What can churches do to spur imaginative possibilities for working across lines of difference?
  • How should Christians reconcile their beliefs with different beliefs in the workplace?
  • How might a pastoral candidate think about tertiary tools (like the Enneagram) that could cause division among staff or congregants?
