Second installment of De La Rosa’s ‘Keeping Faith’ now online
PMA video newsletter highlights Easter’s ‘new way of life’
The second monthly installment of “Keeping Faith,” the video newsletter from Tony De La Rosa, interim executive director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), was published earlier today. In this post-Easter edition of his communication, De La Rosa says the season “is a time when we practice a new way of life in the risen Christ who is everywhere at work in the world.”
Available in English—with English, Korean and Spanish subtitles—this edition of the newsletter features three stories. “Fair Food” is the story of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and their struggle for dignity and fair farmworker wages. “Human Trafficking, a $32 Billion Industry” showcases a new mobile application that educates children and youth on how to avoid becoming victims of human trafficking. “40 Acres of Hope” highlights the work of The Campbell Farm, and its efforts to create safe spaces for children, on the Yakima Nation (Reservation) in Washington State.
The three segments found in this edition of “Keeping Faith” will be individually published to the PC(USA) YouTube and channel for use as minutes for mission in church, presbytery and small group settings.
