Agape and Rev. Matt bring Contemplative Practice Resolution to UCC Synod
The resolution proposing that the UCC become Contemplatives in Action passed by a large margin last week at the 2021 "Special Edition" UCC Synod.  Agape was one of the co-sponsors of the resolution.  There have been a number of articles and comments in favor of the resolution.  Tiffany Vail, writing on behalf of the Southern New England Conference wrote a great article here.  Another quick yet poignant article by Theresa Blythe was posted in Patheos, a religion and spirituality news website.  The Patheos article is here.  What a great impact for Rev. Matt and Agape!
