Otter Creek Church of Christ was one of a number of Nashville churches that graciously hosted World Convention visitors today. The church is an adherent of the a capella tradition, but for the last ten years has worked diligently in promoting healing of the divisions within the Stone-Campbell movement. One leader wryly observed that they were sometimes referred to as “Odder Creek” because of this and other positions. A number of us came to Otter Creek because of connections made on the Stone-Campbell tour earlier. We were warmly received and hosted at a luncheon that followed. I was able to share my congregation’s fondness for the platypus, a kind of “Australian otter” that defies easy description. Again, some pictures will be added as soon as I can find a hotspot that my wifi will connect with. Heading home tomorrow, so not sure how soon I can tune in here again.
