Sunday Worship Service: Presbyterianism from a Non-Presbyterian Perspective

by Staff

Does being postdenominational mean belonging to no denomination at all? I believe in the Protestant principle of prophecy and protest, and I believe in the Catholic principle of mysticism. I think postdenominational means to belong to one and many.

in The Emerging Christian Way

Sunday Worship Service: Why I am Presbyterian

by Staff

We, unaccustomed to courage / Exiles from delight
Live coiled in shells of loneliness / Until love leaves its high holy temple
And comes into our sight / To liberate us into life. / To liberate us into life.
We are weaned from our timidity.… / We dare be brave
And suddenly we see / That love costs all we are
And will ever be. / Yet it is only love / Which sets us free.

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
― Martin Luther King, Jr.
