This United Church
Thanks to Jordan Sullivan who posted this link on Facebook, I'm able to draw your attention to the results of a survey recently completed that aimed to get a handle on the identity, values, and beliefs of people in The United Church of Canada. There's lots in here to explore but a few interesting tidbits to get you going:
The survey results were coalesced into four groups: Pillars (38%), Observers (23%), Traditionalists (21%), and Progressives (17%). Hmmm. Which are you? You'll have to read the descriptions to REALLY figure it out!
The average length of time someone had been associated with the United Church: 23 years
Respondents over 50 years of age: 82%
Respondents born in Canada: 86%
Respondents who said they'd be very comfortable with a gay, lesbian, or transgender minister: 50%
Respondents to said they'd be very comfortable with a transgender minister: 27%
(The following isn't from the report but I thought you'd find it interesting!)
Number of United Churches: 3362
Number that are members of Affirm United: 62
Enjoy reading the rest of the report! You'll find it here but you'll need to scroll down a bit to get to the actual links.
