Just go get all those groups you mentioned and ask them to worship together and see what you get. Be honest because you know your blowing smoke.
A low church protestant service is a jazzed up bible study. 3 songs, 2-3 prayers by 1 or 2 people and a man talking about 3-4 verses for 40 minutes.

You have described a low end protestant service not a low church protestant service. At a low church protestant service one would still find significant elements of the Roman Catholic Liturgy and Canon of the Mass being used and adapted. One would not expect to find such things as incense or the aspergillum being used.

I regularly worship with people from all different Christian backgrounds. It's amazing, because what is important rises to the top, and the things that divide fade away. We can discuss doctrinal differences, but we're too busy celebrating Jesus together, learning from Scripture together, showing each other grace.

I know it drives some people crazy, and they say that we must not be firm in our own beliefs, but it's not the case. We're all just riding in Noah's Ark together, grateful to have been saved from the storm.

Look like someone doesn't know a low church from their a**h**e or has ever seen the Book of Common Prayer. I've been looking at Primitive Baptist websites and I'm amazed at how similar the PB is to the CofC. But then Stone and Campbell lifted their stuff right from the Baptists. They did drop foot washing and wine but not much else.

You cannot see the humor?

That is what you are doing and he put in a light-hearted manner.

Right now it appears you are searching and have no clue what you believe. You appear to just want to be liked. You just need to hear Jesus calling you . Why do you think that Bishop allow your group to do whatever you do at your assembly in a Catholic Chapel. Jesus is calling you to the Church he started.

Of course I can see the humor, but I just don't think it's very funny. Cynical humor is depressing to me. It means you have to fart on everything you disagree with, but ha ha, look how clever I am when I do it. That's what MarkEden did, because he can't imagine true fellowship between people of different denominational backgrounds, just like Johnny Robertson and his ilk.

And once again, I have to tell you not to presume you know me from these comments. I don't have any doubts what I believe. And while I do like being liked (who doesn't?), that's not what drives me to worship with people of different Christian backgrounds. It's the knowledge that God's bigger than our divisions. And He's also at work in non-Roman Catholic churches, and THAT's what the Bishop recognized. He was apparently a bit more in touch with God's spirit than some of the people on this board. Pity that.

Before you ask, yes, I do have lines I wouldn't cross for fellowship. It just so happens that the people in my inter-denominational services aren't across that line.

1. Which Bishop?
2. Clearly you would be happier with the Unitarians than any Christian denomination.
3. Did you vote for Obama once or twice?
4. Do you have what is now known in medical parlance as Ghetto Booty?

1. Your momma's Bishop.
2. That depends on whether or not your momma would be there.
3. Ask your momma.
4. No, but your momma might.

Look! I can be funny, too.

He is the Bishop, a successor to the Apostles. He is your Shepherd. He is the Shepherd of all Christians in his Diocese. He thinks of you as part of his flock. You may not realize it , which is good, but he is using his loving way as a Bishop to lead you to the Church he recognizes that has the fullness of the Truth. He wants to bring you to heaven with him. How, in the Church Jesus started which is the pillar and foundation of truth

How can you not go into a Catholic Cathedral and not feel the presence of Jesus. His body is in the tabernacle.

One of the local Catholic Churches here lets the Greek Orthodox worship in their Chapel. Already has born fruit.

I wouldn't be surprised if that were true, Mike Peterson - that he saw us as Protestant heathen. However, he did say multiple times that we worship the same Lord, which led me to believe that he wasn't proselytizing. Also, he never invited us to attend Mass, or any of their special services. It was more, you need space, we've got space, you're welcome to the space.

It was pretty cool, and if nothing else, it did raise my estimation of Roman Catholics, and hopefully the respect we showed to him, the nuns, and the church building, raised his estimation of Protestants.

Feelings can be deceptive. However, if I do feel the presence of Jesus in a Catholic Cathedral, or in a non-Catholic Cathedral, it's because where two or more are gathered in his name, then there's the possibility that I'll feel his presence, because he's there. Matthew 18:20.

Wasn't is awesome that a direct successor of the Apostles was talking to you in person.

That Bishop and the nuns have given up their lives to follow Jesus.

Of course we worship the same Lord. Protestants just don't believe everything he taught. Only part. Some more than others.

I bet he gets 1 or 2 converts if those who are there are listening to Jesus.

Jesus did not send you to that building and interaction with one of his shepherds without a reason.

There was no succession of Apostle that also is a false teaching and not found in the bible.

Disappointed that none of the CoC from Martinsville or Danville have had the guts to respond to this article.

Looks like its too much for them to answer. They see churches united in worship and baptism and they can't comprehend it, it goes against all they've learned in their creed rehearsals.

It was cool to talk to a brother in Christ, but that's about as far as it goes. And while I appreciate that they've given their lives to follow Christ, I know plenty of Protestants for whom that's true as well. Regarding what the Protestants believe, we believe everything he taught as recorded in Scripture. We just think that what came after Scripture is more suspect. And finally, he did send us to that building for a reason... we needed a place to meet, and he did what he does so well - providing in ways that we would never have imagined.

How in the hell can succession be found in the Bible? Daily I'm astounded at your stupidity. So you think maybe the last one standing suddenly realized there was no one in position to take their places and just said OOPS!

It must be true if you said it. It must be awesome to speak like a Pope.

Are you making this statement ex Cathedra?

The hundreds of billions who have believed this over the last 2000 years are definitely wrong.
