Special Report: PCUSA General Assembly

Here is a special report for Progressive Spirit on the 222nd General Assembly that met July 18-25 in Portland at the Oregon Convention Center. The Assembly meets once every two years. It previously met in Portland in 1967 and before that in 1893. I speak with former moderator, Rick Ufford-Chase, newly elected stated clerk of the PCUSA, J. Herbert Nelson, Palestinian Christian, Nahida Gordon, Jeffrey DeYoe of the Israel-Palestine Mission Network, Ned Rosch of Jewish Voice for Peace, Ray Bagnuolo of That All May Freely Serve, and Michael Zimmerman of the Clergy Letter Project on topics of LGBTQ justice, fossil fuel divestment, Israel-Palestine, evolution, and the church’s future.
