I'm ordained by a presbytery of the PCA.

As I look at this list, I see a bunch of denominations that are virtually identical. I think the Kingdom of Christ would be better served by at least some of these denominations merging.

Like all the ones w/ C? Wait, that would leave ARP against the world. OK, how about all the ones with P? Or, all denominations w/ more than 3 letters in their acronym must merge into a denomination with only 3 letters.

Why is the there an URC and URCNA option?

There is an URC in the UK, a apostate merger of former liberal denominations.

With their diverse understanding of confessional subscription and lack of uniformity in worship, it is amazing groups like the PCA and OPC continue as denominations. What is the function of a denomination when a family moving from one city to another may not find a congregation of the same affiliation teaching and worshipping by the recognizable forms of the one from which they are coming? For there to be unity, there must be a common confession, understanding of subscription, ordination vows, and discipline. It is not just a matter of merging organizational structures and denominational bureaucracies.

True. But who says I was specifically referencing those two denominations? I'd ardently disagree that for churches to have unity that they must be virtual carbon copies of one another.

I could say I'm an Obnoxious Liberal Devotee to Medieval Arminian Nuttiness, but who would want to hang around me then? :p

Or I could just say I'm a member of the WhIG party...

I laughed at that line somebody had recently with Pipes, Cigars, and Alcohol. I think it got changed to Pipes, Caffeine, and Alcohol.
