Think about your church.
Think it is representative of the United Church of Christ?
No matter how diverse your congregation – racially, theologically, politically, socially, gender- and sexual orientation- or age-wise, or any other way – it is unlikely it is as diverse as the UCC as a whole. And this beautiful “vast array” [Genesis 2:1, NIV] is never more apparent than at General Synod.
The theme of GS28 is “Imagine What’s Possible.” It will be a time for me to stretch my mind, heart and soul from thinking about what is to imagining what is possible for my local church, the UCC and the world.
