Here’s one way to end the year: to review yearbooks of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches, deposited at the Internet Archives.
Why the NACCC, or “continuing Congregationalists,” here?
- Like the Unitarian Universalists, they are part of the New England Way of churches.
- Two UUA-member churches (First Parish, Plymouth and Universalist National Memorial Church) are honorary members.
- The Council of Christian Churches within the Unitarian Universalist Association has “fraternal relations” with the NACCC. (Years ago, I once delivered greetings on behalf of the Council.)
- Some Universalist churches that opted-out of the UUA consolidation found their way to the NACCC.
- I can think of at least two ministers in fellowship with the UUA who at one time served a NACCC church. (I’m sure there are more.)
