OK... you've got a friend in me.  On what level might we share-- history, liturgy, social action, etc.?  bless,  s

The history and liturgy of the UCC and its two merging bodies that were merges themselves would be fascinating to me. to learn more about. I have Anglican/Lutheran roots, and have arrrived at a form of religious naturalism (Henry Nelson Wieman wold be one representative example).  Religious history is a strong interst of mine. Richard

The UCC came into being when ecumenical energy was pretty high.  The rediscovery of liturgy was a cresting wave as well.  UCC heritage, though pretty stongly Calvinist (not too strictly!), appreciates the other sides of the Reformation as well, both Lutheran and English (some of the E&R folk were German and some of the CC folk traced there history to Britain).  All four consituent bodies were also intentionally different to their neighbors-- not conservative, not fundamentalist... and not particularly 'charismatic.'  Of course, we all know what happened in the late 60s and early 70s socially in America... and how most denominations over-reacted unhelpfully and unhealthily.  :-(  The UCC, nationally, did not over-react, thanks be to God... and we have paid a high price.  Most like to treat us like the ugly duckling, when in fact we are the beautiful swan!  :-)  Better close for now.  bless,  s

Why is it too stressful?
