Pastor Roger Barkley speaks about how Progressive churches have been quick to assure everyone that they aren’t like “those Fundamentalist churches”, but have been slow to understand who they are.
We have to be clear in our own understanding about how God has spoken to us and our vision for a healthy Christ-led church.
The beginning of the new year is a good time to remind ourselves of who we are, of how God has spoken to us, and of the Good News we have to share.
For the first six weeks of 2018, we will be walking through the Statement of Faith of the United Church of Christ. This is a unifying, clarifying and inspiring document that gives us signposts (not hard-and-fast dogma) for our Christian journey.
