10:30 am - 11:30 am
WhiteDid you know the UUA and UCC (United Church of Christ) have a common heritage? Did you know there are currently ongoing talks on how our two churches can work closer together to promote our shared values? Many argue the “Mainline Liberal” church is dying, out of touch, yet I believe the “Mainline Liberal” church is awakening from a slumber to a world full of spiritual questions and want to “belong” to something that changes the world.Caleb is a Masters of Divinity student at Chicago Theological Seminary and a Member in Discernment in care of the Heart of Texas Association of the South Central Conference of the United Church of Christ. The UCC is a mainline liberal denomination of approximately one million members formed in 1957 from the merger of the Congregational Church and the German Evangelical and Reformed Church. He graduated from Huntsville High School in 2005, Sam Houston State University in 2010 with a B.S. in Political Science. Caleb is both a Wilke, Johnson, and Brown Scholar, has preached in UCC pulpits across North and Central Texas and has previously served as Student Pastor at in Fort Worth for First Congregational United Church of Christ. You may also remember Caleb as a former Walker County Democratic County Chairman.
