Inclusive theologies and the United Church of Canada   Leave a comment

The United Church of Canada may be moving in the direction of legislating what it is permissible for ministers to believe.

It now appears that the United Church is on the path towards adopting the practices of an exclusionary approach to faith through the erection of a security barrier between itself and those ministers who have different theologies.

Mike Milne, in an article in The United Church Observer, comments that, “A compromise that facilitated the creation of the United Church 90 years ago is at the crux of a debate on what ministers are supposed to believe today.” Read Milne’s column on this controversy at: http://ucobserver.org/faith/2015/09/essential_expectations/
