United Church Ministry Statement
Our diaconal colleague Denise Davis-Taylor who sits on the Theology Inter Church Interfaith Committee of General Council of the UCC asks that the updated Statement of Ministry report be sent to the wide CCS community for response. The draft statement is available at http://www.unitedchurch.ca/communications/news/general/110131
You will see that this paper continues to focus on functions of ministry which we (Diakonia) have tried to broaden to include approach, ethos, focus, philosophy over the years. It wouldn’t hurt to use this opportunity to raise these issues and any others you have in response to this most recent attempt to define the difference between the streams of Ministry in the United Church of Canada.
