Time for a name change?

Can or should there be a distinction between "progressive" Churches of Christ and "conservative" Churches of Christ. I know it would make it easier for ministers looking. Yes, I know that there are code words, like "sound in the faith", "gospel preacher", etc. but do you sometimes wish there could be a distinction so we know who is who and even make it easier on where to go for worship? I am all for unity. I love all brothers but is it time for a Christian Church / Church of Christ distinction between the progressive churches and conservatives? What do you think?

Kenny, do you consider yourself a progressive, or conservative, and what is the difference?

Perhaps both sides should try to agree on the essentials? Here is how John Wesley put it:

"Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike? May we not be of one heart, though we are not of one opinion? Without all doubt, we may."

The first comment really made me think since I would be hard pressed to fit myself, or the church where I preach, into either camp.

When is the best time for a name change? Wait till after the honeymoon to change a name. Here's why: You'll need a copy of your marriage license as proof business cards
