News From Pittsburgh Presbytery

What Should Be Public & What Should Be Private?

What forms of love require that they be exercised incognito? And when should we make sure to express our love to and for others, especially our pastors? The Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge, General Minister to Pittsburgh Presbytery, answers these questions and more in today's meditation, Love Incognito?

Too Soon to Talk About Advent Resources?

The season of Advent is coming soon. To help you through times of study and devotion, the PC(USA) Store has three new books. The first, Christmas in the Four Gospel Homes: An Advent Study, is ideal for group study and uses each of the four sessions to look at the four Gospels as a house that your study group can visit throughout Advent. Read an excerpt of Presbyterian pastor Cynthia M. Campbell's book study to see if it is right for your group.

They also have the latest addition to N. T. Wright's Advent for Everyone series. In this volume on Matthew, Wright provides his own interpretation of the Scripture as well as reflections and questions for devotion or discussion. Both study groups and individuals can use this through the four weeks of Advent. Read an excerpt.

Finally, there is a special new 365-day devotional available. The Courage to See pairs selections from over 200 works of great literature with Scripture to create a devotional experience for all book lovers! You can start reading the devotional at any time and Advent presents a unique opportunity to begin this spiritual journey. Literary greats such as Wendell Berry, Jane Austen, Willa Cather, Harper Lee, Toni Morrison, Henri Nouwen, Marilynne Robinson, J. K. Rowling, and Barbara Brown Taylor are just a few whose work is used. Start using this devotional for free with these first five days of devotions.
