40th Anniversary of the Uniting Church

22 June marked the 40th anniversary of the formation of the Uniting Church.   There was a small gathering at our local Church to mark the occasion, and to reflect on the past 40 years … and what the future might hold.

We tend to measure a lot of things by looking at the number of people involved, but over the years, there’s obviously been a decline in the number of people actively involved in the Uniting Church – and I believe, other denominations as well.  There doesn’t seem to be any likelihood that this trend will change;   we have no alternative but to accept  the fact that Christianity is in decline in our society.
