I could not be prouder of my Church today. About 400 of us marched from the St. Louis Convention Center to the courthouse to share $47,000 to bail out non-violent offenders who could not afford to pay their cash bail.
It has been our hope that the Presbyterian Church USA General Assembly would not merely come into town for a convention but that we would make a practical difference in the lives of regular people in the name of Jesus Christ who spent a lot of time talking about care for the poor.
We continue to meet to discuss issues and changes to our constitution. But if we achieve nothing else, we have made a difference in the lives of at least three dozen people.
This is what theology looks like.
