The Rev. John Buchanan, pastor at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago, said that while staunch conservatives and liberals are unhappy with church policy, the vast middle is satisfied.
“The people of this congregation are not at all distressed with where we are right now,” said Buchanan, a former moderator of the denomination. “And I think there are many, many more churches like that, than there are churches that are unhappy.”
Cutter takes a long view, noting the denomination’s history of splits and mergers.
“The process of union and reunion in the Presbyterian Church ... has been going on for centuries,” he said. “I don’t anticipate it stopping. I anticipate there may be people that want to come back.”
