Opportunity for Acronyms

Are you a YA with interest in the NCCC-USA or the CWS? Do you know what that means? Somtimes I feel like I'm about to come unglued with our use of acronyms -- a language that creates insiders and outsiders in the attempt to make communicating easier... Because let's be honest, it's a whole lot easier to say "the NCCC" than "the National Council of the Churches of Christ."

Regardless... Upon reading the latest issue of Ecu-Link, I discovered this really cool opportunity for 18-30 year olds (their definition, I guess of Young Adult)... the General Assembly (GA) of the NCCC and Church World Service (CWS) will be in Orlando in November ... They need "stewards" to do things like hospitality. All expenses, except personal, will be covered by the assembly, and you can download an application here.

It looks pretty cool... And, while you're at it, check out the general site, if you're into that whole ecumenical thing... :)

They also publish a yearbook of American and Canadian churches and this year's book focuses on the impact of the blog! Yearbook 2006: Postmodern Christianity: Emergent Church and Blogs, ed., Eileen Lindner.
