About this blog

In Spirit and Truth seeks to encourage discussion and deeper consideration of representation issues in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It is hoped entries will prompt reflection and dialogue on aspects of expanding representation and supporting full participation in the PCUSA, especially at the assembly and mid council levels.  

This blog will occasionally feature content written by one of the fifteen members of the General Assembly Committee on Representation, who are teaching and ruling elders from across the country, as well as links and articles of particular interest. The ministries of advising, consulting, advocating, reviewing and recommending are vital to the life of the whole Body of Christ. Committees on Representation and/or their functions exists at all councils above session so from time to time we may highlight activities and insights from sister committees on representation at lower councils throughout the church.  

Any views or opinions presented in this blog are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. or the General Assembly Committee on Representation.
 
Author/Facilitator Molly Casteel is an Assistant Stated Clerk and the Coordinator for Representation, Inclusiveness and Ruling Elder Training in the Office of the General Assembly.  She is a teaching elder (a.k.a. Minister of Word and Sacrament) in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary.

GACOR At The 220th General Assembly

The General Assembly Committee on Representation (GACOR) is ever present at the 220th General Assembly (2012) in Pittsburgh, PA.  Located at booth 119 in the exhibit hall (Hall B) we are becoming acquainted with new faces and reconnecting with familiar faces. At our booth we are sharing our recently revised “How to Start or Revive a Mid Council COR” and new COR logo, which is displayed on our promotional items.

We welcome individuals to stop by and share their joys, concerns, hopes and dreams in the creation of a prayer flag. A prayer flag is meant to express the artist heart, mind, and sprit and can be written words, a picture or combination of the two. We also have statements of support for inclusion, diversity, and intersectionality.

Below are pictures from the opening of the exhibit hall, June 29, 2012.
