Through the Bible, the cornerstone of our faith, we know the stories of God's efforts to communicate with creation and of creation's response. God communicates through rainbows and burning bush, through earthquakes and fire, and through the still small voice. We pray that God will speak through us as we tell new stories of the faith, life and mission found in Christ's church.

  • March 2015 - Bound together from Stated Clerk's Column

    March 1, 2015 by Gradye Parsons

    There is something about snow that binds together a neighborhood. I noticed on my street that the first driveway cleared was the house of the widow of one of our more colorful characters. She never touched a shovel. People helped each other push their cars out of icy ruts. As our streets became more narrow, folks did the dance of who went first with some grace. Without any discussion we agreed to only attempt the hill at the entrance one at a time.

    “The Brief Statement of Faith” says this:

    The Spirit justifies us by grace through faith,

    sets us ...

  • Follow the 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women from Swords into plowshares

    February 26, 2015 by Mark Koenig

    Thirty-five Presbyterians, including eleven young adults, will attend the 59th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women will meet from March 9-20, 2015 in New York. The Presbyterian presence is made possible because the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is an accredited non-governmental organization with the United Nations' Economic and Social Council. The Presbyterian delegation is recruited and supported through a partnership between Presbyterian Women in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries/Presbyterian Women, and the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations.

    This session of the Commission will focus on the Beijing Declaration ...

  • What difference does one gift make anyway? from Daily Offerings

    How one offering counts, again and again

    February 18, 2015 by Tricia McReynolds

    Each year, One Great Hour of Sharing gives us the opportunity to support disaster relief, hunger initiatives, and self-development of people. Even if you’ve given to this Offering in the past, you may have wondered: Does my individual gift make much difference?

    The problems OGHS seeks to address are daunting. Millions displaced by disaster or political upheaval. Whole communities without enough food to eat. Entire generations without access to education and opportunity. In Galatians 6, Paul writes, “So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all” (v. 10). Through God and the work ...

    A Faithful Response

     

    We, youth representatives of diverse organizations and Christian institutions from Peru and Bolivia and pastors, elders, and young adults in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), met in December 2014 in Lima, Peru for an international gathering on climate change organized by the Red Uniendo Manos Peru with the support and accompaniment of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

     

    • We believe that climate change poses unprecedented, unjust peril that affects the most vulnerable populations.[1]
    • We are particularly concerned by the excessive, inequitable level of consumption that has created most of the recent ...
