As United Church of Christ Takes on Race and LGBTQ Issues, Consensus Reigns

Meeting gathered for the 2017 UCC meeting, UCC is set to kick off their denominational meeting this Sunday

It also has long since settled questions about the inclusion of its LGBTQ clergy and declared itself called to be an “anti-racist church.”
