A perennial question for people of faith is whether or not – and, since the rise of modern science, how – God can act in the world. It is connected to miracles, the efficacy of prayer and more generally how to believe in providence, grace, inspiration, and even the most basic concept of God. Are these ideas even worth considering when science so masterfully describes the natural order of things?

Saturday, October 7, 9:30 AM-2:00 PM in the WRPC Fellowship Hall
Coffee/breakfast items will be available and lunch will be served.

Congregational Care, Christian Formation and Stephen Ministry are partnering with Transitions LifeCare [formerly known as Hospice of Wake County] to bring to WRPC a screening of the PBS Frontline documentary called “Being Mortal.” Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Atul Gawande, this film explores the things that really matter to patients and their families who are facing terminal illness, their relationships with their medical team, and the family members who care for them.

The Reverend Denise Anderson and the Reverend Jan Edmiston, Co‐Moderators of the 222nd General Assembly (2016) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), have invited the church to read and discuss the book, “Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race,” by Debby Irving. Following our summer series on Confronting Racism, the Christian Formation team invites WRPC to continue the discussion in small groups. We hope that your life will be enriched as you learn how to interrupt racism and grow in your love for God and love for others.

October 15, 2:30pm - 4:30pm in the WRPC Fellowship Hall

West Raleigh Presbyterian Church is co-hosting with the Biblical Justice Forum at Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church a free workshop facilitated by Triangle Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). The workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about the ways in which racism operates in our society today and how we can work against it. We'll discuss how people in power have historically and at the present used racism to divide and conquer us, the power of multi-racial coalitions who have worked and are working together in spite of these efforts, and the role each of us can play in the current movement against racism.

To register or for more information, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or at 919-815-1748. For more information about SURJ, please visit www.showingupforracialjustice.org. For more information visit the Triangle SURJ chapter or on Facebook.

This year in Christian Formation. We were reminded that God shapes and nurtures faith through deep community with and for one another. We invite you to take some time to consider how you will weave your life into this sticky web of faith.

How will you connect to believers of all ages, including children, youth, and young adults?

In what location might you begin a new relationship, perhaps one that is faith-based, where there was not one before? Pray about those you are marginally connected to whether in the church, the home, the community, or online. Might you engage with them in caring conversations or support them in some way?

Are online devotionals a regular part of your day or week? Consider sharing a link to something that touched your heart. A couple of “online retreat” links are
