Presbyterian News Service reports that:
The online form for sharing thoughts on the identity and purpose of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as part of a church-wide conversation initiated by the Committee on the Office of the General Assembly will now be available until December 18. The extended period allows time for even more people throughout the denomination to weigh in.
“Please share your insights, wisdom, hopes, and dreams for the PC(USA),” said COGA Moderator Margaret Elliott. “Through careful listening and honest sharing we can create a church for this time and place.”
Talk individually or in groups using the questions from the online form at pcusa.org/identity and a discussion guide downloadable at pcusa.org/discussionguide. Each person is then invited to fill out the form themselves. Hear how to walk through using the guide on information calls:
Wednesday, November 4, 3–4 p.m. (EST)
Monday, November 9, 8–9 p.m. (EST)
Use call in (800) 231-0316, or (314) 696-0504 for international participants
Also join Larissa Kwong Abazia, Vice Moderator of the 221st General Assembly (2014), in the second of two Twitter chats on Thursday, November 12, 9–10 p.m. (EST). She’ll be @LarissaLKA using the hashtag #pcusaidentity.
The 222nd General Assembly (2016) will use much of the information gathered to collectively discern God’s call for the church. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or for more information.
