Roberta Rominger to be new United Reformed Church general secretary

Good news for international women's day tomorrow, the United Reformed Church has just announced that the Reverend Roberta Rominger will be its next General Secretary.
Congratulations Roberta! I'm really pleased and very proud of my denomination.

In the press release making the announcement Roberta said “I am passionate about the vision of a Church that is enthusiastically engaged with the world. I believe God speaks and acts in the world today. The Church’s life should reflect this God, who is committed to hope, justice and human flourishing.

“Among the members of the United Reformed Church, are many creative, inspiring and intellectually and spiritually alive people. It is a privilege to be called to lead them”.

Roberta Rominger trained for ministry in the USA, and was ordained in California, in the United Church of Christ. She came to Britain in 1985 and has been a minister in the United Reformed Church ever since, serving as Moderator of the Thames North Synod for the past ten years

Congratulations, Roberta! What a great affirmation of you and a new challenge for the future. We saw inklings of this at the Pacific School of Religion.
