With a docket of 19 resolutions to consider at General Assembly 225, the Theology, Worship, and Education Committee began diving into issues and discussions that will influence faith practices of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) members.
Louisville waterfront parks host Funk Fest Juneteenth Celebration and Kentuckiana Pride as Presbyterians kick off their 225th General Assembly nearby. Clear ties bind these events with shared concerns.
The Juneteenth worship service wove together prayers, liturgies and songs in multiple languages from many voices to remind those gathered of the Christian call to racial justice and reconciliation. Stated Clerk J. Herbert Nelson preached a rousing sermon on the call story in Isaiah 6 that challenged those gathered to continue the prophetic work of their faith.
