This has me tripping!

So, I'm reading tons of material to prepare to teach UCC History at Iliff. Not only am I reading current UCC materials, but also books from the perspective of those who either did not join the UCC at the merger or who have left since.

In a book by one such group, The First 50 years of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, in the section about why churches have left the UCC recently, my name appears! There is a paragraph that quotes an article in the Cleveland newspaper about my ordination in 1993. This is one of the reasons given by a church in Ohio that they left the UCC!

This is a relatively obscure book to anyone outside that particular denomination. To see my name was a trip.
