Immigrants and Refugees Oct 19 ⋅ by Mim Tilton As a new committee under the Mercy Commission, the Immigrant & Refugee (I&R) Committee is planning ongoing care and support for our refugee family, the Asukulus, over the next five years. The children are: Mercredi (male, 18); Shikasana (male, 15); Nyemia (female, 12); Alpha (male, 10); and Vision (male, 7).

After fleeing the violent, war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo in Central Africa and living in Tanzanian and Malawian refugee camps for sixteen years, the Asukulu family, through the UN High Commission for Refugees, was approved and cleared by the U.S. Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security.

They arrived in the U.S. in September 2016 and were assigned to Bethany Christian Services (BCS) for resettlement. BCS staff provided initial case management as well as financial and legal support for the Asukulus. BCS approached Tenth Presbyterian Church to provide volunteer assistance with some of the other resettlement needs for...
New Mercies Oct 17 ⋅ by Debbie Langford God is doing a new thing at Tenth. The ministries that have found their home in the newly formed Mercy Commission are finding fresh synergy as God broadens our understanding of the word “mercy.” Through the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus described compassion shown to another whose life journey had placed him in unexpected circumstances. Even the Pharisees could identify this k...
A Modern Reformation Oct 11 ⋅ by Douglas E. Baker “I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not retract anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. I cannot do otherwise, here I stand, may God help me, Amen.” —Martin Luther, April 18, 1521, Diet of Worms

The world of the early 16th Century could accurately be describ...
Learning to Love through Stories Oct 9 ⋅ by Megan Siegle The stories we read as children helped bring our imaginations to life. They took us to places we could never imagine and taught us lessons through extraordinary circumstances. While we do not live in a world with knights in shining armor or magical creatures, in stories we see their heroic acts display what bravery looks like in action. In C.S Lewis’ novel The Lion, the Witch, and th...
A Journey to Connect Oct 4 ⋅ by Ray Withers For a long time, I have wanted to connect with a Tenth missionary in a personal, ongoing way. I envisioned knowing about their country and neighborhood, purpose of their mission, needs that I could help meet, and concerns that I could pray for. I’ve been following missionary news by praying through the monthly Outreach Prayer Calendar, attending some of the Sunday morning breakfasts with ...
Ethnicity, Arrogance, and the Call of Christ Sep 25 ⋅ by Carroll Wynne Racism, in all its evil forms, militates against our Christ and his call to be his Church. Perhaps in part, it is our failure to understand the value our Creator-God embedded in those he made in his image (cf. Genesis 1:27-28). 

In the beginning, all was good and fruitful, but following the break caused by that original sin, humans became immediately separated from t...
Reforming Tenth Press Sep 18 ⋅ by Douglas E. Baker Next to the Bible, Pilgrim’s Progress has been one of the most published books in the English Language. One of the most poignant scenes is when Christian (the main character of the book) stands with his friend Hopeful as their journey through the wilderness of this world is about to end and they see in the distance the Celestial City. One barrier remains: a great river. The river is very ...
Welcoming Jan Sep 13 ⋅ by Laura Layer Jan just moved to Philadelphia this summer. As an emergency room intern she has a new job in an unfamiliar hospital, a new apartment, and a new roommate. All of this “uprooted-ness” happened in a mere three weeks, and Jan is feeling a bit unmoored. What she thought was going to be her exciting adventure in the city has become a confusing whirlwind.

A Gospel Culture on Campus Sep 3 ⋅ by Douglas E. Baker Hundreds of students at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) live with the life and influence of an Anglican minister every day, and few of them realize it. First erected in 1919, a statue of Rev. George Whitefield stands in the Quadrangle (the Quad) just in front of the Morris and Bodine sections of the present Ware College House. Whitefield, once a internationally famous Oxford educated mini...
