Pre-Presbytery Workshops:

The Storm with No Name: How Presbyterians Respond to Disaster 

Christina Drake, Disaster Recovery Coordinator for South Louisiana Presbytery, gives an update on recovery efforts from the 2016 storm that flooded Louisiana, what she has learned along the way and ways we can respond locally and further afield.

From Iraq with Love: 

John Shuck, Pastor of Southminster PC in Beaverton, will make a presentation about his recent trip to Karbala, Iraq during Arbaeen.  Over 15 million people visited the shrine of Imam Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Mohammad, in a single two-week period, making Arbaeen the largest yearly gathering on earth. Yet it receives little attention in Western press. John will share reflections, photos and videos about his trip in which he discovered that honoring Imam Hussein deepened his own faith in the message of Jesus.
