The National Council of Churches (NCC) will hold its 2017 Christian Unity Gathering on November 8-10 at the Sheraton Hotel in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. This year’s theme is “Resilience, Resistance and Persistence.”
Do churches care about working people? The Social Creed for the 21st Century says yes. Right after its adoption in 2008, for example, it was invoked to support ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage. So how did the 33 churches in the National Council of Churches reach agreement to update the original Social Creed of 1908? The answer is threefold and gives us hope for ecumenical cooperation to advocate for working people.
