From The Director
Mary, Did You Know?
“So [the shepherds] went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. Whey they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:16-19 (NRSV)
When Mary and Joseph couldn’t find a hotel room, when the only crib available was a trough where the animals fed, then you'd expect that these would be dire circumstances. But curiously, I imagine that this was one of the happiest moments of their lives, and the Word spread that this special baby was born. Read more.
The Racial Ethnic Torch
In this issue, you'll meet young adult Presbyterian leaders. You'll meet Asian young adult leaders, who wrestled with the theme of "New Leadership in a Changing Environment" at the Pan Asian English Ministries Pastors' Conference. You will be introduced to young women who attended the Commiccion on the Status of Women in New York and some who shared their hopes for the church with us at a Season of Listening with the Young Adult Women event held this summer. You'll also learn about new staff in Racial Ethnic & Women's Ministries, as well as upcoming events. Download here.
