Discussion on ecumenism

Reformed Review

Abstract

The discussion began with comments on the New Jersey “United Synod” episode as remembered by Len Kalkwarf. Carl Kleis remarked that the success of the idea of the united synod owed more to Len than the latter's modesty suggested. Herman Harmelink added the comment that the reason that the Presbyterians themselves finally, in effect, scuttled the synod was that they had begun to go in for “large geographical synods,” which made the cooperative arrangement with the Reformed Church “inappropriately disproportionate.”
