Martha Moore-Keish, Associate Professor of Theology, will preach at the closing worship for the 221st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) in Detroit, MI next week. Her sermon is titled “Bound for the Promised Land” based on Mark 1:1-13. The closing worship service begins at 9:00 am on June 21, though Prof. Moore-Keish will preach at about 11:00 am.
The 221st General Assembly will be held from June 14 to 21, 2014 at the COBO Center in downtown Detroit. This biennial meeting brings together commissioners and advisory delegates from all 172 presbyteries, as well as other delegates and observers from around the world. We begin and end with worship, and in between there are celebrations, deliberations and inspirations for everyone.
The LIVE stream will be available on the General Assembly web page starting with opening worship at 11:00 am on Saturday, June 14 and will include all worship and plenaries for the event.
Before coming to Columbia Seminary, Prof. Moore-Keish served on the faculty of Yale Divinity School and as an associate for theology with the PC(USA) Office of Theology and Worship. She currently co-chairs the international Reformed-Roman Catholic dialogues.
