Through the Bible, the cornerstone of our faith, we know the stories of God's efforts to communicate with creation and of creation's response. God communicates through rainbows and burning bush, through earthquakes and fire, and through the still small voice. We pray that God will speak through us as we tell new stories of the faith, life and mission found in Christ's church.

    If not now, when?

    My untended garden
    A poem about seeing oppression in and outside the church . . . and doing nothing

    by Rose Niles

    I stare
    into my untended garden
    with its morning-dappled
    light barely whispering through the treetops—
    this bower encapsulating my tiny haven
    my church of light,
    this freshly longed for
    church in the world—
    when my eye spies a single leaf
    floating in air
    a graceful unlikely thing
    full of impossibilities,
    slowly it twirls
    disappearing on edge
    tauntingly there again
    as a stiff breeze shifts
    the violent thread,
    dancing like a hanging thing
    jerked and held in death
    in the back of ...

  • Boston Food Justice Young Adult Volunteer – Ashley Earley from Food and Faith

    October 8, 2015 by

    My name is Ashley Earley and I am serving as a Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) in Boston this year and our focus is food justice. I will be posting periodically onto this blog about various food related topics for the next year.  First, I would like to introduce myself. I am from Rock Hill, SC (just south of Charlotte, NC) and graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in May with a bachelors in biology and a minor in math. I am currently taking a gap year before going to graduate school for a master’s in plant biology and afterwards plan to go into research. I have never been to the New England area before, but I am so far really enjoying my time in Boston.


    For this year, I am serving at First Presbyterian Church in Brookline and at a non-profit called Woman and Girls Thriving in Brookline with a focus in the Healthy Food and Lifestyle working group. My role will be to learn and educate about food justice.


    Also as part of the program we will be participating in two different food challenges. From September to the end of January is the local eating challenge and February to the end of July is the SNAP (food stamp) challenge.

    Thinking with a not-so-colonized mind

    Why I (still) love Pope Francis
    How a humble priest from the slums of Buenos Aires has changed the face of Catholicism (and Christianity) for me, despite him not being everything I want

    by Antonio “Tony” Aja

    I am a Presbyterian pastor. I try to follow the tenets of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Reformed tradition to the best of my abilities. This tradition, despite its modern commitments to ecumenism, is rooted in some harsh anti-Catholic rhetoric, and I admit that for a while I bought into it. Catholicism’s legacy of colonialism in my home country ...

  • justleros = more than just nonsense or disparates from Presbyterians Today Blog: One Church, Many Voices

    A space for a contemporary woman disciple to give voice to justice concerns in a world where some still think that women’s words are just leros (Greek for “nonsense”) or, in Spanish, disparates

    Attentiveness deficit
    A resource for Sunday's liturgy based on Mark 10:17–22

    by Magdalena I. García

    As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honor your father and mother.’” He said to ...
