Carl Trueman, in an article in First Things, asserts,
There can be no visible institutional unity in terms of liturgy or theology between Baptists and Paedobaptists, let alone between Baptists and practitioners of paedocommunion. Thus, the question: What will this unity look like in practice?

TIME asks, “When did Christmas Eve displace Christmas Day as the time for Christians to observe one of the two holiest days in the church year?”
Good question. How and why did it happen? And what are the consequences?
Read the article “Going to Church on Christmas: A Vanishing Tradition” for their answers.
David F. Wells:
A Renewed Protestantism, one that looks like it has in its high moments in the past, will have about it:
- a joyous sense of knowing God, of knowing him through his Son;
- of being able to live in his world on his terms and celebrating his sovereign rule over all of it….
- it will be sinewy and tough;
- it will not cave intellectually to all the fads and rackets of our time;
- it will have an infectious joy in doing what is right;
- there will be a sense of awe in God’s creation presence;
- of gratitude in being able to serve him in all the callings he gives.
And here some of the things that have been torn apart by life and by its disarray will begin to be put back together.
