"I keep thinking about the kinds of stories we, the dominant white culture, choose to tell through our symbols, such as neighborhood and street names, monuments, flags, and holidays."
"Which stories to celebrate? Which stories to live? We can choose."
"We want an architect. A distant genius who designs our beautiful lives. And when our lives aren't beautiful? We assume we're not following the architect's plan. We'll blame ourselves before we blame our maker."

United Church of Christ pastor Rev Jeremiah Wright:
"The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected,” Wright said. “And what Dr. King said, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, has implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters, who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
The latest research about UCC churches shows significant shifts within the United Church of Christ.
More churches are engaging with other faith traditions, the representation of female pastors is increasing, and the number of bi-vocational pastors is growing.
