What is the event? It is a Triennial Gathering of the Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the Northeast. The theme is “Household of Faith”. The dates are August 18-19, 2017 in Albany.
Who is the foreigner? Who is the native? What is it like to be “the other”? These are the questions to be explored at our Gathering. Based on the scripture Ephesians, Chapter 2: 7-21 “…you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household…” a diverse group of speakers, panelists and workshop leaders will highlight migration, immigration and cultural diversity. Our goal and hope is that all the attendees will have a renewed commitment to deal with others in love and understanding. This is an especially meaningful theme for us as our Synod is the most culturally diverse in PC(USA).
