THE SARASOTA STATEMENT

MEET THE WRITERS

A group of eight diverse participants in the Presbyterian Church (USA) gathered in Sarasota, Florida, on January 23 and 24, 2017. Together, the group wrote a first draft of a statement of faith. Over subsequent weeks, the group refined their work. Here’s more about the writers of the Sarasota Statement.
