First Unitarian in Albuquerque, N.Mex., which has two branch congregations 30 to 70 miles away, has been approached by a third group of people, 300 miles away in Carlsbad. Discussions have begun to determine if it too might become affiliated with First Unitarian. “This will give us an opportunity to see how well a church can ‘adopt’ a branch at a long distance,” says the Rev. Christine Robinson. She also reports an increasing numbers of inquiries about branches from across the country. Find a description of Albuquerque’s branch ministry on its website.
