I am Liking This

That All May Freely Serve is planning a big event at General Assembly. It is the New Church (R)evolution. Read about it on If you are in your 20's (give or take) they want you to be on the team! Airfare etc. is covered if you're application is accepted. Here is the information:

For the last 30 years our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been divided over the place of its lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) members on issues like ordination and marriage. Along with other organizations, That All May Freely Serve has lobbied the church to change these destructive policies and end its oppression of LGBT people.

This year, we're taking a different approach from the legislative strategies of the past – a change that YOU can help make happen. At this year's General Assembly (June 21-28) in San Jose, California, That All May Freely Serve is bringing about a New Church (R)evolution!

Young adults and seminarians – our New Church (R)evolution team - will claim their birthright as members of a just and inclusive church. Through positive, life-giving action, the New Church (R)evolution will be the church we seek, as we invite the PCUSA to have the courage to join us in living into freedom and justice!

If you're:

in your twenties, give or take,
maybe in college or seminary,
maybe serving the church in some other way,
Presbyterian or concerned about the future of the mainline Protestant church,
definitely want to live on the edge of your faith and make a difference...
