    Rockwood, OR

    The multicultural community of Rockwood, Ore., outside of Portland is at a crossroads. Residents have few options available to them for healthy food choices, jobs and health education. A light rail system transports residents to jobs and grocery store chains but offers few stops for locally owned stores and businesses. Vacant lots show promise for community gardeners but efforts to make those properties available have been slowed by red tape.

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

    미국 장로교는 인디애나 주의 종교 자유 및 복원법 (RFRA)개정안을 우려 속에서 기다리고 있다

    그래디 파슨스, 미국 장로교 정서기

    “대답하여 이르되 네 마음을 다하며 목숨을 다하며 힘을 다하며 뜻을 다하여 주 너의 하나님을 사랑하고 또한 네 이웃을 네 자신 같이 사랑하라 하였나이다” (눅 10:27).

    예수 그리스도를 통한 하나님의 사랑에 뿌리를 두고 있으며, 이웃을 사랑하라는 명령에 의해 인도함을 받고 있는 미국 장로교는 차별을 허용할 수 있는 법안은 어떤 것이라도 반대하며, 문제가 되고 있는 인디애나 종교 자유법에 대한 개정안을 고대하고 있다.

    우리는 인디애나 주지사인 마이크 펜스에 의해 최근에 법안으로 승인된 RFRA로 인해 크게 놀랐다. 그 법안의 현행 표현들은 개인이나 기업들이 종교적 ...

  • Offering Remittance

    Published April 1, 2015

    After an offering is received in churches (like One Great Hour of Sharing, taken on Palm Sunday or Easter), I often get calls asking where to remit these donations. The short answer is, "through your standard receiving agency" - but what does that mean? 

    Churches are invited to make a note of the offering in the memo line and send their collected funds through their Presbytery, or to the PC(USA) lock box:

    Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
    P.O. Box 643700
    Pittsburgh, PA  15264-3700

    Sending your check to the office of Special Offerings (in Louisville) will delay your gift - because ...

  • 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.
