Kinnamon installed as NCC executive: "Unity is not synonymous with agreement"

Church-unity advocate Michael Kinnamon, affirmed unanimously this month as the National Council of Churches’ next general secretary, does not expect that being the chief ecumenical voice for 35 communions will be a placid job over the next four years.

“Unity is not synonymous with agreement,” Kinnamon said to NCC general assembly delegates meeting November 8 in a New Jersey hotel outside New York City.
