Had you been toying with joining the Disciples, or was that just wishful speculation on their part?
When I was a kid (starting a year or two before I was born), my dad was the campus minister of the BDSC (Baptist-Disciples' Student Center) at the University of Washington. His ordination was ABC (actually NBC, I think; predated the Northern > American name change. So he attended University Christian on the last (I think) Sunday of the month. We kids didn't go there that often, sticking to University Baptist most of the time. But I daresay I was hep to denominational matters a lot younger than most of my peers.
In probably about 1964, BDSC grew and morphed into Koinonia Center; my dad became the director and Baptist CM, the Disciples bought Tom McCormick in to run their end, and UCC (the denomination) came on board with Mineo Katagiri as CM. A few years later, Koinonia Center moved into the then new Covenant House, which had a half dozen other participating denominations, including RCC, TEC, ELCA, not sure who else. Maybe UMC and p
PCUSA, but I'm not sure. Some years after that ABC dropped out (lack of funds, I think) and I'm not sure what's become of the others.
BTW both UBC and UCC (the building, not the denomination) are now strictly historical entities. UBC disbanded, with most members joining First Baptist, I think. UCC apparently abandoned its (huge! with a cavernous sanctuary) building, and amalgamated with another DOC congregation several dozen blocks north. I hope to visit that church next year, assuming they and I survive.
