Is it Really All About the Benjamins?

Have you heard of Freedom Rising?  Chances are, if you’re a pastor, it’s rolling around in your head, probably in the category of “things I need to find out more about,” or “things I might need to get involved with if I have the time.”  If you are a person in the pew, the chances are much lower that you’ve heard of this overture from the PC(USA).  We’re sorry about that and we’re also hoping that this article can help improve that situation.
