After the Presbyterian merger vote and the stormy General Synod meeting in 1969, the Committee of Eighteen’s report to the General Synod in 1970 began a new chapter in the life of the Reformed Church in America. A shared commitment to “unity in diversity” emerged during the years which followed and, though often challenged, continues today. The constructive dissent represented by the current “Chicago Invitation” is a recent example of how sharp differences can be contained within a denomination which genuinely believes in “always reforming,” but where schism is regarded as sin.
