Brunswick News Article Highlights GA Meeting

Friends,
 
The following links are to an article that appeared in the Brunswick News on July 12, 2014. There will certainly be many opportunities for education and conversation within our Presbytery in the coming months.  
 
Perhaps the thoughtful statements of two Savannah Presbytery Pastors and our two Commissioners to the GA221 in Detroit may be helpful in understanding what happened and how we can work through these issues together as Presbyterians and as Christians.
 
Grace and Peace,
Russell
