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.

Already respected for articulating ecumenical goals in the areas of theology and church order, Kinnamon chaired for four years the NCC Commission on Justice and Advocacy, which successfully worked to raise minimum-wage levels, among other accomplishments.
