Clarksville Presbyterian Church
Friday Notes and Reminders
October 6 is World Communion Sunday!
World Communion Sunday celebrates our oneness in Christ with our brothers and sisters all around the world. It was first celebrated at Shadyside Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, PA, in 1933 as their attempt to bring churches together in a service of Christian unity.

The idea spread very slowly at first. But it was during the Second World War that the tradition caught hold when nations were trying to hold the world together. World Wide Communion symbolized a Christian effort to hold things together, in a spiritual sense. It emphasized that we are one in the Spirit and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This information and much more about PC(USA)'s work around the nation and the world can be found on the Presbyterian Mission webpage .

"In racing, they say that your car goes where your eyes go. The driver who cannot tear his eyes away from the wall as he spins out of control will meet that wall; the driver who looks down the track as he feels his tires break free will regain control of his vehicle."
