This can result in the one Catholic Church being counted as 242 distinct denominations, as in the World Christian Encyclopedia.Additionally, single nondenominational congregations or megachurches without denominational affiliation are effectively counted each as its own denomination, resulting in cases where entire "denominations" may account for only a handful of people.There are a variety of different expectations of what that Christian unity looks like, how it is brought about, what ecumenical methods ought to be engaged, and what both short- and long-term objectives of the ecumenical movement should be.Ecumenism and nondenominational or postdenominational movements are not necessarily the same thing.For example, the Catholic Church is a single church, or communion, comprising 24 distinct self-governing particular churches in full communion with the bishop of Rome (the largest being the Latin Church, commonly called "Roman Catholic").
The terms ecumenism and ecumenical come from the Greek The ecumenical vision comprises both the search for the visible unity of the Church (Ephesians 4:3) and the "whole inhabited earth" (Matthew ) as the concern of all Christians.

It might have been too cute in different hands, but both Toby and Gemma Jones gave performances that were almost as miraculous as the story itself. How will the story stack up against the greatest films about business?
Most current divisions are the result of historical schisms—a break in the full communion between previously united Churches, bishops, or communities.
Some historical schisms proved temporary and were eventually healed, others have hardened into the denominations of today.
