New NCC head

Episcopal bishop Craig B. Anderson, 55, a former marketing executive at Proctor and Gamble, began a two-year term as president of the National Council of Churches last month in Washington, D.C. Andrew Young, a United Church of Christ minister and former UN Ambassador, was unanimously chosen by 350 delegates as president-elect to succeed Bishop Anderson. The new president said he will work at trimming the NCC agenda to three to six issues. The New York-based NCC, formed in 1949, has 34 Protestant and Orthodox member denominations which claim to represent 52 million people.
