Catholic, Evangelical, Pentecostal, Protestant, Orthodox and Historic Black Churches Together
During this Season we Celebrate the GIFT of God
The rulers and principalities of this world seek to divide us. The love of God in Christ Jesus unites us. Christian Churches Together celebrates the unity that is ours in Christ.

We hope that everyone experience the joy and healing presence of Christ during this Advent season and in the new year.

"And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." Matt: 1:21

October 2-5
Note on Content of Previous CCT Email Blast

On our last email blast, we shared three news clips. Two of these where statements released by two different networks of Christians concerning the unity of the body of Christ. These two different statements laid out the theological perspectives of the signers.

As we have done in the past, we distribute statements like these with the simple purpose of informing our readers of the public conversations happening among Christians on different theological, social, and political topics. The main purpose for sharing such articles is to create awareness.

Representatives of two of our participant communions shared with us their concern relative to such statements being included within our newsletter without first establishing the proper context for their inclusion.  

It was not our intention to promote the views of these documents. It is clear that some of the perspectives expressed in these documents can be offensive to some of the participant communions. We express our apologies for any grievances caused by sharing these documents.

In the future we will make sure that such documents are accompanied with an introduction and explanation for the reasons why they are shared, and how they could be used to promote dialogue.

Christian Churches Together is committed to promoting dialogue among the different Christian traditions in our country. At the same time, we recognized that such dialogue must always be accompanied with respect and love towards each other.
Pan-African Christian Devotional

In times like these, you need a Savior,
In times like these, you need an anchor;
In times like these, you need the Bible,
In times like these, O be not idle;
In times like these, I have a Savior,
In times like these, I have an anchor;

This Rock is Jesus, Yes He’s the One,
This Rock is Jesus, the only One;
Be very sure, be very sure,
Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

This hymn, written in 1943 by Ruth Caye Jones and popularized by Mahalia Jackson in 1963 during the height of the civil rights movement, is a favorite hymn in many of our churches. Times of conflict, war, national division, hunger, poverty, or relative peace or prosperity do not diminish the love and power available to us from God.

This  weekly devotional guide  recognizes this while honoring the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the time of his martyrdom on April 4, 1968, the Poor People’s Campaign, and Tent City/Resurrection City following this. These occasions remind us that our advocacy to end hunger and poverty matters.

Although Pan-African people are disproportionately affected by hunger and poverty, Pan-African people remain resilient and empowered by their faith. This devotional guide invites deepened relationship with and among Pan-Af­rican people and elected leaders in the mission to end hunger and poverty. Twenty-three national and global church partners represented through 46 Pan-African church leaders and scholars from across the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa have contributed to this devotional guide and invite you to use it to advance this mission.

A Special Ministry of Evangelicals for Social Action

One of CreatureKind's goals is to help strengthen the fast-growing community of Christian animal advocates. We can do that to a certain extent online, through our blog and Facebook page. But there's something special about being face-to-face with like-minded people. There's something special about being able to show up in a space to simply rest in the presence of God and not have to be "on."
