Progress towards unity made at General Synod

Thursday, June 28, 2007

There is certainly a great deal of optimism coming out of General Synod. From the Hartford Courant:
The General Synod in Hartford, which drew more than 11,000 of the denomination's 1.2 million members, was an opportunity for the UCC to repair some of that damage and, judging by the reaction of one of the UCC's most vocal conservative ministers, it was somewhat successful.

The Rev. Bob Thompson, president of Faithful and Welcoming Churches of the United Church of Christ, an organization whose stated goal is keeping estranged churches from bailing out of the UCC, said in an interview Monday that he was "pleasantly surprised" by how included he and others were at this year's Synod.
The real test will come as the hangover from General Synod passes and everyone settles back into their routines.
