I'm originally from a big city, but I've been a pastor of a church in a small town for three years now, and I've run into several issues as a result of small town dynamics that I wasn't really prepared for. This will be the first of probably many questions I have regarding small town ministry and pastoring in general. We have a ministerial alliance of pastors in our town. They plan several church services throughout the year that we can all share together, and lately we've also been cooperating on some youth events. I'm all for this stuff. Except that the Catholic church is also represented. Now, I recognize that many Catholics are saved (just as many Baptist are not), but because of official Catholic doctrine, I struggle with the concept of fully embracing events in which the Catholic church is participating. The church I pastor will follow my lead. I'm just not sure how to lead. I want us to participate in multi-denominational services and events, but I don't want to send the message to the community that we're in perfect fellowship with Catholic church. What's your take?
