A fifth candidate has emerged to stand for moderator of the 2012 General Assembly. Janet Edwards, co-moderator of More Light PresbyteriansJanet Edwards from 2008-2011 and a Presbyterian minister for 35 years, has announced that she will stand for moderator, even though Pittsburgh Presbytery voted on Feb. 2 not to endorse her.

          Edwards is a graduate of Yale Divinity School and earned a doctorate from Duquesne University. She currently is involved with Community of Reconciliation Church, a multi-denominational congregation in Pittsburgh, although she is not the pastor there. Edwards and her husband, Alvise, have been married for more than 30 years and have two sons.
