Acting on a recommendation made by the Presbyterian Intercultural Network, the Presbyterian Mission Agency is asking the 223rd General Assembly to approve at their June, 2018 meeting a resolution that would
"Declare an Imperative for the Reformation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
in being a
Transformative Church in This Intercultural Era."
The resolution begins:
The Presbyterian Intercultural Network (PIN) affirms that we are living in an increasingly intercultural society that brings numerous challenges and opportunities for effective and relevant ministries. We recommend that the 223rdGeneral Assembly (2018):
Immediately denounce the persistent and demonic presence of racism and the misuse of power and privilege in our individual and institutional lives.
Declare the period from 2020 to 2030 as the "Decade of Intercultural Transformation" by focusing on transformative priorities and initiatives across the Presbyterian Church (USA).
