Pioneer Women Reflect on Women in the Bible
We are delighted to share excerpts of this fascinating series, Pioneer Women Reflect on Women in the Bible created for The First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, with our Nassau Presbyterian family for the next five weeks. View the complete series on their website.
This series invites you to see the women in the Bible through the eyes of women who were called to teach and preach when women in church leadership were few and far between. Each has been asked to reflect on a woman in Scripture whose character has been important for her own life and vocation. Each session has an accompanying Study Guide provided by the Rev. Dr. Louise Johnson, Associate Pastor, Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville.

2020 is always hindsight, except when it’s not.
The fifth presidential election of the 21st Century: what a long, strange, trip it’s been.
The 2020 presidential election was launched in late 2017 when the first Democratic candidate declared and featured the greatest numbers of Democratic challengers in 100 years. The primary campaign has had more lead changes than an Indianapolis 500 and a surprise guest in the coronavirus pandemic. Add it all together, and you get the most intriguing race since . . . 2016. As the Talking Heads once asked, “How did we get here?”

Least Dangerous Branch? US Supreme Court’s 2019-2020 Term
Alexander Hamilton famously wrote that the judiciary “will always be the least dangerous” branch to the “political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them” Federalist Papers, #78. This session explores highlights and themes from the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2019-2020 term involving cases dealing with the electoral college, congressional oversight of the executive, the free exercise of religion and contraceptive mandates, and the 1964 Civil Rights Act and sexual orientation and transgender status discrimination. The survey will consider the arguments, personalities, and political dynamics of the Court as the Justices wrestle with these critical constitutional issues.
