    Seeing God in Sarang’s company to Pinto and Toby

    Hey there, wonderful Everyday God-talk community! 🌟 This week, let's take a moment to reflect on how we connect with the divine through our relationships with other living beings. And guess what? These beings don't have to fit into the traditional categories of "spouses," "partners," or "children." They can be our beloved furry friends - our cats and dogs. 🐱🐢 But today, I want to introduce you to a companion animal that's still somewhat unusual but gaining popularity - the charming hedgehog! πŸ¦”

    Lucy’s Seeing God in H.E.L.P

    This week, we delve deeper into the profound way we experience the presence of God in our closest relationships with the living beings that surround us. While this might seem like a familiar one, it unfolds into a uniquely touching storyβ€”one that revolves around a grandchild finding her voice. Through this narrative, we learn valuable lessons about our connection to God, the art of prayer, and effective communication with our loved ones.

    Psalmtember & Marcus Hong

    Ah, September, you enchanting month! It's that time of the year when we desperately try to grasp onto the fading warmth of summer while eagerly embracing the most charming season of all – autumn (if you're lucky enough to experience all four seasons). In many corners of the United States, September marks the return to school – a fresh start, a rekindling of connections, and a return to that familiar circle of friends, colleagues, and a home away from home, distinct from our summer retreats. Now, let me introduce you to our enthusiastic friend, Marcus Hong, who's declared a month ago, "It's that time again! Just a little over two…

    Climate Justice and Evangelism Sunday πŸŒπŸ™

    This past Sunday was truly a remarkable day for countless Presbyterians, each with their own unique reasons to celebrate. For some, it was a Sunday devoted to the pursuit of Evangelism, fueled in part by the tireless efforts of the dedicated individuals behind the ministry of Theology, Formation, and Evangelism within the Presbyterian Mission Agency. A heartfelt round of applause is in order for the incredible contributions to the Evangelism Sunday resources of Miatta Wilson, Nikki Collins, Carlton Johnson, and yours truly. πŸ‘

    Education and Laura Zhang Choi

    Hey there, meet Laura Zhang-Choi – a fantastic individual with a name that'll pique your curiosity if you're familiar with Asian surnames! As a fellow member of the Korean diaspora, I can tell you that her heritage is a beautiful blend of both Chinese and Korean roots. Laura was born into a Chinese diaspora family and found her love story with a Korean diaspora family. Yet, at the core of her being, she's all about being American, just like her entire family. Laura's on a mission to make her community shine brighter, and her secret sauce? A whole lot of love and a commitment to educating the children in her…

    Progressive Asian American CHRISTIANS?

    I just had the most incredible and rejuvenating time at the Progressive Asian American Christian (PAAC) gathering, hanging out with the awesome crew from the progressive UMC hybrid church HA:N (which, by the way, is a Sino-Korean term that’s all about liberating your soul from trauma) Now, these aren’t your typical “church” communities. These friends here are not big fans of that label because of the past trauma we’ve had to deal with in those white normative, patriarchal, and homophobic churches. Instead, it’s all about being ourselves, no explanations needed. Comfort in our own skin is what it’s all about. I can’t even begin to express how blessed I felt…

    Presbyterians and the World’s Religions

    We’ve done a great job sharing the PC(USA) study document about antisemitism and Islamophobia at the Parliament of the World’s Religions. Our discussion was super cool, with scholars and activists from different religious backgrounds, including Jewish and Muslim leaders. We really made some awesome connections with some amazing folks in this interreligious setting. Curious about what’s in that study document? Check it out here: Denouncing antisemitism and Islamophobia.And don’t forget to dive deeper into it with this article on Presbyterian Outlook. This document got the stamp of approval from the General Assembly of PC(USA), and the friends at GACEIR (General Assembly Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations) decided to share…
