The Reverend Gradye Parsons, retired Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), will release the book Our Connectional Church: The Hopeful Future of the PC(USA) on June 5, in partnership with Westminster John Knox Press. The Reverend Frank Clark Spencer, President of the Board of Pensions, contributed the foreword to the book.
In Our Connectional Church, Rev. Parsons walks the reader through four churches, big and small, showing the types of ministry being done by Presbyterians today. He explores the risks being taken by congregations and reflects on the importance of being nourished in a local congregation and being relevant witnesses in the community. He also reflects on the future of the PC(USA).
Our Connectional Church is available for pre-order from the Westminster John Knox Press website.
