About this blog

Through the Waters is the blog of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Christian vocation ministries. Because the ministry of Christian vocation affirms the need for all baptized Christians – including Presbyterians - to identify and claim their call to discipleship in each decision and life choice, this blog is designed to serve as a resource for youth and young adults, as well as those in ministry with them, to assist the Holy Spirit in God’s movement in this journey through the waters. Take some time to read and think about your own responses to the questions posed here. For additional resources, we suggest that you visit our website.

Feeling the Movement at General Assembly

Ga219logo_sq Would you ever think of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly as a discernment opportunity? A place to hear God calling you into more active discipleship; to live out your baptism?  It actually happens to be a great one. Since General Assembly (GA) is the business meeting of the denomination it is easy to get hooked into the decisions and issues at hand but it can be just as easy to also feel the movement of the Holy Spirit as those decisions are made and the issues discussed.  It’s community.

This year, the discernment aspect will be even more intentional for one of our amazing advisory delegate groups. Young Adult Advisory Delegates (YAADs), who actively participate in the GA committees while also advising the voting commissioners during the plenary, will be offered several discernment resources. One of these is a supplement to the GA Daily Devotions. If you will be participating as a YAAD, you’ll get a printed copy of this resource for use during your time at GA. If you will not be serving as a YAAD this year but would like to participate from afar, please join with us in this venture by printing out or reading along with us. 

General Assembly occurs July 3-10, 2010 in Minneapolis, MN.

During those days, read the daily devotions as found on The Presbyterian at

Then, use this supplement to think through the GA theme and how it and the event connect to your own life. You may not be there in person but we will all feel the Spirit!
