Helping the church to think, pray, and live the faith

Thinking, praying, and living the faith is at the core of the ministry of the Office of Theology and Worship.  

At our 2012 General Assembly in Pittsburgh we found ourselves facing a basic question: what is the relationship between our confession of faith and our polity? This is not a new question. We have faced this question repeatedly, since the early days of Presbyterians in the United States. Barry Ensign-George and Charles Wiley reflect on this important question in "Constituting Us: Confessions and Polity in the PC(USA).

  • Charles, the TPLing the Faith video is well-done. Thanks for taking the time to produce it for the church. On the other hand, the "Sanctify Them in the Truth" document that is so careful not to step on anyone's toes that it ends up giving little practical guidance -- kind of like the motto "Theology matters." By the way, there is a verb missing in the last sentence of the opening section, paralleling the verb "raised" -- just before the asterisks on the opening page. Thanks for all your efforts to help the church. by Mateen Elass on 11/23/2011 at 12:31 p.m.

  • How do I obtain a copy of Theology Matters, Vol 16, September/October 2010? This site is not easy to maneuver through to find this publication. Thanks. Jeff by Jeff Saddington on 06/20/2011 at 10:06 a.m.
