By The Rev. Jean Niven Lenk
Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Stoughton, United Church of Christ.
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.
Won’t you join me?
