A forum scheduled for Aug. 12 at Grace Episcopal Church takes aim at defining Christianity, “beyond the catchphrases.” The product of discussion between local Christian leaders, the event is hoped to be a “launching point for a series of conversations around the richness of different denominations,” said Father Stuart Higginbotham of Grace Episcopal Church. “We have the opportunity to explore what I see as a trans-denominational community partnership in Gainesville,” Higginbotham said, adding that the Rev. Bill Coates, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Gainesville, has been instrumental “in encouraging this.”
