General Assembly 2018

Info Session about PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World

Thursday, March 1, 2018

What is the PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World? Where does it start and end? When? Where are we sleeping? Why is this happening? Will there be worship? What if I can't walk but I want to be a part of it?

If you have any of these questions (and any others!) join us for a webinar on March 1 to learn more and ask all your questions and tell us why you're interested in this two-week walk. We don't promise to have all the answers (we're still planning some elements of the walk), but we'll follow up with the answers as soon as we have them.

Meet the 2018 PPF General Assembly Interns

Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and Rev. Dr. William Barber to Receive 2018 Peaceseeker Award

The Presbyterian Peace Fellowship will honor Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis and Rev. Dr. William Barber with the 2018 Peaceseeker Award at the Peace Breakfast on June 20 at the meeting of the Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly in St. Louis. Founded in 1944, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship is a nation-wide community of Presbyterians who seek to follow the nonviolence of Jesus by working to reduce war and violence in the world. The Peaceseeker Award is its highest honor.

An Update on the Conflict in Syria

As we move into 2018, the nature of the conflict in Syria continues to evolve.  The question arises as to whether the overture currently working its way towards the next General Assembly is still a valid position statement for our denomination. What follows is an overview of the on-going conflict, leading to an affirmation that the overture as written still provides an appropriate affirmation of our vision for the way forward.
