장로교인들이 믿는 것: 장로교 영성

몸과 마음의 재결합 클라우디오 카르발에스 | Presbyterian Today 이 기사는 2018년 2월/3월호 Presbyterians Today에서 발췌 한 것이다. 왜 우리는 종종 우리의 영성을 오해합니까? 장로교인으로서, 우리는 우리의 육체가 우리의 지적 믿음과 단절된 것처럼 우리 머리 속에 생각하고 있습니다. 우리의 예배는 대부분 우리가 생각하는 것과 관련이 있습니다. 예를 들어 우리가 예배에서 춤을 추는 사람을 보게 된다면 그것을… Read more »

Gun Violence and children • La violencia armada y la niñez

I was sent to the home shortly after the death to comfort a family I had never met. The case sheet read: young, male, black, single, Baptist, terminal cancer. • Me enviaron a la casa poco después de la muerte para consolar a una familia que yo no conocía. La ficha de datos decía: joven, hombre, negro, soltero, bautista, cáncer terminal.

성적 노예의 비밀 과거

전쟁에는 인간의 얼굴이 있다. 모든 그림자, 모든 줄, 모든 주름은 이야기의 일부이다.

Sexual slavery’s secret past

War has a human face. Every shadow, every line, every wrinkle is part of the story. In a recent visit to South Korea, a PC(USA) peace delegation witnessed firsthand the human face of war. The delegation visited the War & Women’s Human Rights Museum. There they watched video interviews with “comfort women” — women kidnapped or lured by the promise of jobs and forced into sexual slavery in what were known as “comfort stations” for Japanese soldiers during World War II. The women in the video spoke no English. There were English subtitles to help translate. The subtitles, though, weren’t necessary. The women’s faces said it all.

Faith and Sports

Sports encroaching on Sunday worship. Controversies over kneeling versus standing for the national anthem at football games. Praying before the big game. Americans are passionate about sports. But where does faith come into play on the playing field and in the pew?

Presbyterians Today Lenten Devotional: Jesus and the Prophets

The season of Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and contemplation of the power and promise of the paschal mystery. Perhaps there are no better models of how to live Lent than the prophets. Designed for congregational, family and individual use, the 2018 Presbyterians Today Lenten devotional is now available for ordering.

Everyday Epiphanies

The word “epiphany” (from the Greek epiphaneia or theophaneia) means “appearance” or “manifestation” of God, and has roots in the word for sunrise or dawn. For Christians, Christmas marks the coming of God to us; Epiphany celebrates the appearance of the Lord in the midst of humanity. Epiphany not only reveals the Savior to the world but also calls the world to show forth Christ — to be witnesses to God’s true light.

Threats of deportation jeopardize congregation

No one likes to lose a church member. Now imagine the prospect of losing 70 percent of a congregation. Marturia Presbyterian Church in Rochester, New Hampshire, is facing such a reality as its Indonesian members have fallen under the focus of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

New Book of Common Worship coming in 2018

Five years, 200 people, a bajillion emails and a whole lot of prayer. That’s what it takes to make a new Book of Common Worship (BCW). You might ask: Why do we need a new BCW? A changing church needs a worship book that reflects contemporary concerns and offers new liturgies, fresh language and a good deal of flexibility. The revised BCW will do just that, making room for new ways of being church while staying grounded in the best of Reformed and ecumenical practices.

Sexual harassment in the church

When the news about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual harassment became public, women flooded social media with the hashtag #MeToo. In solidarity with women who were harmed by Weinstein, women shared their personal stories of being emotionally and physically demeaned by men.
