Moderators' Conference 2013 Theme
Who do people say the Son of Man is? Who do you say that I am?:
A Conversation on Presbyterian Identity
for a 21st century Church and World
In the midst of a changing ecclesial landscape, we as Presbyterians are needing to recover our shared identity and calling. We find this most powerfully in the context of the covenant community that gathers around Word and Sacrament, and then is sent out to testify of the Good News of Jesus Christ.
