Two hundred years ago today (June 28, 1804), Barton W. Stone and five others signed a document called "The Last Will and Testament of the Springfield Presbytery." In 1801 several of these men had preached in a popular revival at Cane Ridge in Kentucky. They reacted against rigid Calvinism, calling on people to make decisions. As a result, some were faced with disciplinary actions by their churches. So in 1803 they formed a coalition of similarly-minded churches and called it the Springfield Presbytery. But one year later, they dissolved the coalition. They realized that it was divisive. Included in the "Last Will and Testament" were these words: We will, that this body die, be dissolved, and sink into union with the body of Christ at large; for there is but one body, and one Spirit, even as we are called in one hope of our calling. Not bad words to revisit 200 years later. I'm a member of the Highland Church which is part of a group (denomination) known as Churches of Christ. But much more important than that is that we are part of the larger body of Christ--made up of followers of Jesus of many nations and many denominations.
