Celebrating Rev. Ben Weir’s 92nd Birthday!

hapbirSome of you will remember Rev. Ben Weir, Moderator of our General Assembly in 1986. You may also remember him from the hostage crisis in Lebanon in the early 1980s. He is part of the family at First Presbyterian Church in Oakland, CA. His 92nd birthday is December 20 and the Presbytery and others around the country have been invited to send him birthday greetings to create a flurry of cards from Presbyterians across the country.
