Yay UCC! (Spiritual/Political/equality)

United Church of Christ - General Synod overwhelmingly calls for "full marriage equality"

This article calls the UCC church one "with roots deep in the soil of societal change". And as it also states, they took a GIANT leap foward on July 4th, when they passed a resolution in support of EQUAL marriage rights for ALL people! Yay!

For more information on the United Church of Christ, visit the UCC Homepage, where the church is described as such: a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The UCC was founded in 1957 as the union of several different Christian traditions. From the beginning of our history, we were a church that affirmed the ideal that Christians did not always have to agree to live together in communion. Our motto — "that they may all be one" — is Jesus' prayer for the unity of the church. The UCC is one of the most diverse Christian churches in the U.S.
