Reflections on unity, reconciliation and justice
After a four-year process of study and periodic votes, the 222nd General Assembly (2016) voted overwhelmingly to add Belhar as the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s 12th recognized confession. This companion to the Belhar Confession weaves together Scripture and the Confession’s timely themes of unity, reconciliation and justice. The Confession in its entirety is included at the back of this resource. A few copies will be available at the September presbytery meeting – contact Phyllis Zoon to reserve your copy.
