As the COVID-19 pandemic stretches beyond six months, the Compassion, Peace & Justice (CPJ) ministries of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) continue to adapt to bear witness to Christ’s love and justice in a hurting world. CPJ leaders were heavily involved in August’s Presbyterian Week of Action, which affirmed and witnessed to God’s love for Black lives. As we head into the fall, we see programs tailoring their endeavors to the COVID era as we celebrate the Season of Peace and continue to minister in times of crisis.
