Lift a glass in memory

PamThe Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) lost a giant in Pam Byers who died on 27 October 2014 from cancer. A woman of profound faith, amazing grace, and a loving spirit, Pam worked for the full inclusion of all God’s children in the life of the church and in  our culture. She served as the founding director of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians.

In her honor, I will raise a toast on 28 October 2014 at 20:11 (8:11 PM) Eastern time. 2011 was the year that saw the Book of Order changed to remove G-6.0106b, a cause to which Pam dedicated herself and her energies.

I invite you to join me either at Eastern time or at 20:11 in your own time zone and raise a glass of your choosing.
For the life, faith, witness, and work of Pam Byers, thanks be to God! Please share this invitation.

See you along the Trail.

  1. Amen. Will lift a glass in at least one of the time zones.
    She was one of those people who really made the world a better place, and not in the cliche way.

  2. Amen, back, Marci. Great to hear you will take part!

  3. Is is possible for the General Assembly to meet without Pam Byers? I remember that vote going up on the big boards. I’ll warm up 20:11 as it passes by here. Thank you.

  4. Thanks Anita for the good start. We will pick up the flow. General Assembly will be very different, that is for sure.

  5. I will lift a glass in Pam’s honor and memory tonight at 8:11. I was privileged to lift several glasses of wine with her over the years, a couple of times when I was an interim at MCC San Francisco. She was classy and gracious, and I have nothing but fond memories of her.
