Across the channel the partners are various French Lutheran and Reformed regional and national bodies, in various stages of dialogue and union with each other both before and after their own failed merger proposal in 1969. The consequence was, however, a LutheranReformed Standing Council (1972), which continues to function as the locus of much practical co-operation, and may soon include another partner, the Union of the Reformed Evangelical Independent Churches. …
