Our Lenten Witness, 2018

How many more deaths do we need to witness from a distance in order to allow our hearts to be broken in a way that only God can heal? When will our heart be broken enough so that we will not only be the change, but work for the change in others through the work of our churches and our public witness?.” Click here for Lenten Reflections by Leadership of the Presbytery

Gun Violence, Gospel Values: Mobilizing in Response to God’s Call:

This report, approved by the 219th General Assembly (2010), challenges our society’s acceptance of the highest gun death rates in the world, and proposes a new “spiritual awakening” approach: a church-related, community-based strategy inspired by “Heeding God’s Call” in Philadelphia. The report looks at our culture of violence-acceptance, with its undercurrents of fear and desperation.  Click here to download a PDF of the report.
