Easter and Earth Day worship at PCUSA National Offices

Easter and earth day worship at PCUSA

Colleagues at the PCUSA national offices here in Louisville, KY gathered to plan, lead, and participate in worship yesterday. Worship themes wove together this evocative time of resurrection joy and re-commitment to God's creation-- this week that holds both Easter and Earth Day.

This weekend congregations will host preach-ins on climate change

Presbyterian congregations as well as many others are participating this weekend in a national "preach-in" on global warming.
