Hues Corporation Churches


Remember the Disco hit Rock the Boat by the Hues Corporation?

Don’t rock the boat baby (rock the boat)

Don’t tip the boat over

Don’t rock the boat baby (rock the boat)

Don’t tip the boat over

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright does. As he explained to Bill Moyers:

Unfortunately, most churches now are “status quo.” And so that, to the extent that they’re not trying to feed the poor, they’re not trying to hook up jobs and people, they’re not concerned about the lowest, the least, the left out. They’re not concerned about the youth, they’re concerned about “Let me come here on a Sunday, hear something that tells me I’m ok, and I’m going to back to where I’ve been going. Don’t rock the boat…”

Hues Corporation churches aren’t just those “other” less liberal denominations, UU readers. We UUs have Hues Corporation congregations as well. How Hues are we? How Hues am I? How Hues are you and yours? And what are we to do about it … ?
