Dr. Cynthia C. Wedel
President of the National Council of Churches USA, 1969-1972

Episcopal Church

"It is not necessary for everyone to go back to the beliefs, practices, and teachings of generations ago. What is needed is clergy and teachers who really understand the gospel of Jesus Christ. Rightly understood, this is a liberating and revolutionary gospel. It can be understood and lived only in a fellowship of others seeking God's will."
