Kinnamon's NCC: Frugality and fellowship

If ecumenical veteran Michael Kinnamon is ratified next month, as expected, to be the top executive of the National Council of Churches, look for a stylistic shift on social justice issues and appeals to member denominations to become mutually supportive.

“One of my jobs will be working for justice, but also to see us growing fully as a fellowship together,” said Kinnamon, a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) minister and professor at Eden Theological Seminary, St. Louis.
