MISSION CAPSULE: We live in a world that is constantly changing. The past year brought unprecedented change, and we had to learn to adapt in our lives, jobs and congregations. In the midst of so much change, Presbyterians Sharing … has continued to support the mission and ministry we do together – often in new and adaptive ways. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to one another, discerning together, moving forward together, being in community together, sharing God’s message together, moving forward together, being in community together, sharing God’s message together, confronting injustice together and caring for vulnerable people together. That’s what Presbyterians Sharing … is all about. As we put our gifts into God’s hands, God is doing remarkable things.
