New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 17, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeitung O Friday October n 7A Religion Matters Mot of Qod and wrong do not apply to UCC Editor I have read with considerable concern the article by staff writer Susan Jakobsen which made the front page headlines in your paper last week the article regarding the vote of some 300 members of the member First Protestant Church to separate that historic church from the United Church of Christ My concern does not stem from the article as such It is wellwritten and may well be accurate as a report of what occurred at the meeting I was not present My concern arises from the inevitable impression the article leaves as to the nature and character of the denomination in question especially in the featured statement of the senior pastor of the church The impression namely that this denomination from which the local church separate must be little less than heretical for it is not of God and wrong in its understanding and practice of the Christian faith I have reason to believe that your readers are not being well served by this impression j The United Church of Christ is one of the major mainline Christian churches of our nation the result of a union in 1959 of two previously merged denominations the Congregational Christian and the Evangelical and Reformed Churches in America Earlier this year the UCC entered into fuit communion with four other mainline Christian churches all but one of which have member churches in our community namely the Presbyterian USA Cruirch the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America the Reformed Church in America and the Episcopal Church Each of these churches fit its national assembly voted with well over the needed twothirds majority to ratify the agreement of full communion Is it likely or even conceivable that these national churches would have entered into full communion with the UCC if their officers biblical scholars theologians and lay delegates had found it not of God and Nor have t found it so I have served on various committees agencies and boards of the UCC since its founding have helped revise its constitution served as chair of its nominating committee attended six of its general synods helped organize its local conference comprised of churches and agencies in Texas Louisiana and Mississippi and served twice as moderator of that conference I have served three local churches affiliated with either the UCC or its antecedent denominations or churches in Texas Missouri and Louisiana In all these relations with the UCC I have often been challenged with new and sometimes controversial or unpopular understandings of the Christian Church its mission and its expression of faith but I have never been left in doubt as to the validity of the positions taken however many might find them unpalatable The UCC has been called the most liberal church in So be it I have found it to be the most liberating It declares its member churches that is free to design their own patterns of worship and practice but ever challenged to be or become fully mature and responsible as Gods people in Christ sustained by the good news proclaimed and lived of the grace mercy and love of God manifested and brought near in Jesus the Christ Roland H Pantermuehl Hell House aims to scare out sin ARVADA Colo AP The Abundant Life Christian
