    Netflix

    I have kinda ignored this thread but with COVID we are watching Amazon Prime and Netflix now more than ever. Probably won't go back to network TV again. I I can see why so many have cut ties with cable and satellite TV.

    What do you know about United Church Camps?

    Thanks folks for the input! Keep it coming. Some of the culture of camp boards etc have been mentioned above. There is a wave of folks within UUC camps with an ideology of camps working together. It will take a "relational shift" for camps, boards, local congregations and the national church...

    What do you know about United Church Camps?

    Morning, after attending The Great Gathering last week I have become fired up about pushing the awareness of UCC camps. As a non-camp person (up until 2012 when I started Rainbow Camp), I had no interest in UCC camps. As a Queer person, the last thing I wanted was to be in a cabin with a...

    What do you know about United Church Camps?

    Who has attended a UCC Camp? Does your local church support UCC Camps? Do you know how many kids/youth attend UCC Camps in a year? Do you know how many staff are hired by your local UCC Camp? Do you volunteer at Church Camp?

    When Church members go to far.

    I was at my relatives cottage last night. Haven't seen them in 3 years. We got talking about their uncle and how his last several years of life had been filled with struggles with just getting older, health issues and dementia. He started going to a United Church in Toronto which he spoke...

    Liturgy

    It's interesting - the most recognized part of the church is worship - and yet - we don't have the work of the people involved. The United Church has tones of resources for folks to use so they don't have to create anything new if they don't want. While appreciated, in most cases worship is...

    Liturgy

    No, for example, at our church we have a council, however, we also belong to a cluster so M&P, Worship are the responsibility of the cluster. I know that our worship committee is made up of the four organists from the 4 churches. Lots of people are really not interested in worship or...
