The UCA in 100 words or less
Uniting Church members are still responding to the Act2 Survey.
We want to hear your voice and your insights as we consider the challenges the Uniting Church faces in the next five years, and the strengths we have as a church to face them.
Of course it’s important to know who we are as the Uniting Church and followers of Christ when we think about the future and prayerfully consider where God is leading us.
One of the questions on the survey asks you to describe the Uniting Church in 100 words or fewer. Here’s one we received:
“In our best expressions we embody the reconciling love of God in Christ – a voice of challenge and change in the political and cultural landscape of Australian society; a diverse body, working together with one another and the Holy Spirit to bring new life to people, communities, structures and systems, open to renewal of our life.
In our less than best expression we are an institution stuck in the past, tied to outdated structures and ways of being church because it has always been this way. We fight among ourselves and are distracted from our core purpose of reconciliation and renewal of all things, creation, people, communities, structure and systems.”
How would you describe the Uniting Church? Take the survey and let us know.
