    Abril 2015 - Una gran excelente sorpresa

    Al parecer la primavera llego después de todo, aunque parecía imposible incluso hasta el mismo veintidós de marzo. Allá en Tennessee, podíamos tener una serie de pequeños inviernos, pero suavizábamos el golpe con ponerle nombres a la temporada donde empieza la primavera y el frio se niega a despedirse. En Carolina del Sur, mi yerno ya ha cortado el césped. En Chicago, todavía están quitando la nieve. A pesar de estar en la misma estación, no la sentimos de la misma manera.

    Esto es una metáfora apta para la ...

    크고도 위대한 경이로움

    그래디 파슨스

    심지어 3월 22일에도 불가능한 것처럼 보였지만, 결국 봄이 다가오고 있는 것처럼 보인다. 저 너머 테네시에서는 덜 춥기는 하지만 여전히 겨울 날씨가 지속되고 있는 것 같다. 하지만 우리는 그러한 추위를 꽃샘 추위라 부름으로 추위를 달랜다. 싸우쓰 캐롤라이나에 있는 나의 사위는 벌써 자기 마당의 잔듸를 깎았다. 시카고에서는 여전히 눈을 치우고 있는데 말이다. 우리는 같은 계절 안에 있지만 같은 경험을 하고 있지는 않다.

    이것은 미국 장로교를 위한 적절한 비유가 될 수 있을 것 같다. 우리는 교회 생활이라는 면에서 같은 계절 안에 있지만 같은 경험을 하고 있지는 않다. 어떤 사람들은 매우 행복해 하고 있지만, 또 어떤 사람들은 그렇지 않다 ...

    PC(USA) anxiously awaits proposed revision to Indiana RFRA law

    From Office of the General AssemblyStated Clerk

    The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), rooted in the love of God through Jesus and guided by the charge to love thy neighbor, opposes any legislation that could enable discrimination and is eagerly awaiting proposed revisions to a problematic Indiana religious freedom law.

    We are deeply alarmed about the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act (RFRA) recently signed into law by Indiana Governor Mike Pence, and are concerned that its current wording could provide a legal excuse for individuals and corporations to use religious conviction as a reason to discriminate.

  • April 2015 - The big great surprise

    Published April 1, 2015

    [한국어] [Español] Well it seemed impossible even on March 22nd, but it does appear that Spring may arrive after all. Back in Tennessee we could still have a succession of mini-winters, but we soften the blow by giving them names like redbud winter or blackberry winter. In South Carolina, my son-in-law has already mowed his yard. In Chicago they still have their snow shovels working. We are in the same season but not in the same way.

    Published March 31, 2015

    In a press release sent out on Friday, March 27, 2015, the Presbyteries’ Cooperative Committee on Examinations for Candidates (PCC) announced some significant changes to the standard ordination examinations in the PC(USA) that will come into effect beginning in July. Some were in response to referrals from the 221st General Assembly (2014). Over the coming weeks I will explore each of these changes in separate blog posts, going over both the details in the changes and the reasons for them. The first change that I will address relates to the time allotted for the exams in the areas ...
