Why I joined PPF... and the PC(USA): A Presbyterian Conversion Story

This past June, I had the opportunity of a Presbyterian lifetime to attend General Assembly in Portland, Oregon as an intern with the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship. As interns, PPF welcomed us into the fold of the multi-generational, often rambunctious crew that became like family. The old-timers showed us the ropes of advocacy and the tedious details of commissioners’ resolutions. The young adults taught us to stake a claim in the conversations on the church’s identity, racial injustice, and divestment.
