Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network Encourages Leaders to Mark Pulpit Sunday in January

PHILADELPHIA—As 2013 comes to a close, it will certainly be remembered as a year when many cultural and moral issues made headlines around the country, from marriage and family to Constitutional rights and religious liberties.

Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network (PPN, www.papastors.net) is encouraging pastors across the state to observe Pulpit Sundays starting on January 5, 2014—or on any Sunday they choose in January and then throughout 2014.

Pulpit Sunday is a time for pastors across Pennsylvania to preach to their congregations about today’s pressing moral and cultural issues from a Christian perspective.

“As ordained ministers of God, pastors have a God ordained authority and duty to speak out about what the bible says about all matters of culture,” said Sam Rohrer, President of PPN and the American Pastors’ Network (APN, www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net). “The goal of preaching about these important issues is to have Christians and those who believe in Truth and the Constitutional civic freedoms we enjoy across the state understand and apply the concepts of self-government under God. We urge every pastor who believes in the authority of Scripture across Pennsylvania to join their fellow pastors in preaching the biblical truth about moral and cultural issues.”

For Pulpit Sundays, Rohrer encourages pastors to utilize Pennsylvania Pastors’ Network’s extensive resource library, with nearly 500 resources for pastors. The online library, found at www.papastors.net/resources, is organized by genre (books, DVDs, articles, links, audio and video) as well as by topic. Some books are available for purchase, and the library also offers pastors information about classes or workshops they can attend online or in person for a fee. Many resources are free for pastors to read and/or download.

A list of topics also help pastors who are looking for insight on today’s most pressing headlines, such as abortion, the Constitution, creation vs. evolution, economics, education, homosexuality, marriage, prayer, the Culture War and the environment. The library also houses many sermon titles that can serve as intelligent and timely starts to sermons that will equip congregations to be the salt and light of the Earth in a dark world.
