Minute for Mission: Labor Day; A Social Creed for the 21st Century

It seems that everywhere we turn there are “help wanted” signs displayed in merchant windows.

Minute for Mission: Native American Day

Native American Day is celebrated in recognition of the presence and contributions of Native Americans in our society and Church today. It is recognized on the day of the fall equinox, in September, in conjunction with “harvest time” for many Native American tribes. For centuries, it has been a time of celebration and preparation for winter. A corresponding celebration with Native leaders will take place Sept. 25 at the Presbyterian Center in Louisville.
