News from Pittsburgh Presbytery

Four years ago, half of our country was overjoyed at the presidential election outcome, while the other half reeled in dismay. Last week the tables turned – those who rejoiced four years ago are distraught today, while those who were dejected four years ago are now elated. The shoe is just on the other foot. So how do handle disagreements we may have with leaders and councils? In this week’s meditation, When the Vote Doesn’t Go Our Way, Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge answers this questions and more.
