PNews – 4/22/21

News from Pittsburgh Presbytery

Like the political and economic leaders confronted by the Easter message during the days of the apostles, those of us who enjoy privileged positions in our current order may well acknowledge unwelcome truths, yet want to silence any attempts to talk about them out loud. We need to do some honest self-assessment about how invested we are in making changes that genuine justice requires. What will that look like in our current social climate? In this week’s meditation, Solidarity or Distancing?, Rev. Sheldon W. Sorge answers this question and more.
