Friends in Christ,

Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen, indeed!

Sara LishernessI need to remind myself of this reality on a daily basis – it so easily gets obscured by the daily barrage of challenging news. It is hard to stay focused on the Good News when we are reminded constantly of the brokenness of the world. Yet we are called to give voice and vision to the Good News that Christ has risen. We are called to live in "hope that is not seen." As the Presbyterian Church we are living into hope – expressed by the vision and call to congregations and mid councils to become a Matthew 25 Church. Read below to see how the ministries of Compassion, Peace and Justice continue to work in these areas, to live our Jesus’ call.
