The council’s top-heavy institutional structure has been pared down to four “convening tables” with two issue emphases: promoting peace and ending mass incarceration.

And that, my friends, is the real problem.  When the National Council of Churches doesn't do anything to do with religion - outside of quasi-social justice type political movements - it's hard to build anything on that a thousand other organizations don''t already do, and don't have the baggage of 'religion' with their name.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells
