The 221st General Assembly (Detroit) is less than two months away, and the denomination is actively preparing for its biannual gathering. The Committee on Local Arrangements (COLA) arranged worship and mission opportunities within the Detroit area. Elder commissioners submitted their names as candidates for Moderator. Presbyteries sent overtures to the Office of the General Assembly. Committee leadership is confirmed.
Many commissioners, congregations, and presbyteries prayerfully prepare for the upcoming business of the General Assembly. Some people offer special Christian Ed classes and "Moments for Mission" in worship to intentionally raise awareness about things on the docket. To assist Presbyterians in their preparations for this summer's conversations, the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation (PPC) identified a few of the larger issues on the docket, then compiled a list of related books, articles, and hymns from Glory to God. We hope it will be helpful in the coming weeks.
ThePresbyterianLeader is the online marketplace for PPC. All books and articles are available there.
Please let us know if we can be a further resource to your own ministry in preparation for the 221st General Assembly. We look forward to seeing you in Detroit!
