Dear College Avenue Friends,
When did it become possible for Glenn Beck to declare that preaching a gospel of peace and justice is a sign of communism—and not be drowned out by protests of people of faith? That’s the question I just heard raised in Tampa, Florida by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Leonard Pitts. Pitts addressed over 3000 of us from our wider church at the United Church of Christ’s General Synod. He’s just one of the speakers who stirred my spirit at General Synod and reminded me of what our church is all about. Can’t wait to share more when I’m back at College Avenue. In the meantime, check out Synod news and live streaming at ucc.org. Check out the UCC on facebook, too: facebook.com/UnitedChurchofChrist You might find out a little something about Ellen DeGeneres at Synod!
