The Flame of Unity + La llamada de unidad

About the Flame of Unity

The Flame of Unity was made for our Presbytery, and is in the shape of the seal of the Presbyterian Church (USA) with the addition of a candle. The Flame is rotated to a different church each Sunday, so that when a church “has” the Flame, the congregation knows that all the other churches within the Presbytery are praying for it.

In this way we remember during our worship services the connectionalism of the Presbyterian Church (USA) as well as celebrating and praying for the churches within our own Presbytery family.

That connectionalism is vital as we celebrate the diversity of our Presbytery. Each Sunday, during your church’s worship service(s), please include in your prayers the particular church designated as the Flame Church, remembering and celebrating its life and its ministry.

The Flame of Unity is an important feature as we worship together, remembering that we are all children of our Creator God.

–Rev. Linda L. Culbertson
General Presbyter

Acerca la Llama de Unidad

La Llama de Unidad fue hecha por nuestro Presbiterio y es en la forma del sello de la Iglesia Presbiteriana (USA) con la adición de una vela.  La Llama es rotada a una diferente iglesia cada domingo para que cuando la iglesia “tenga” la Llama la congregación sepa que todas las iglesias en el Presbiterio están orando por ella.  En esta manera recordamos durante nuestros servicios de adoración la conexión de la Iglesia Presbiteriana (USA) y también celebramos y oramos por las iglesias dentro nuestra familia del presbiterio.

Esa conexión es vital mientras que celebramos la diversidad de nuestro Presbiterio.  Cada domingo durante sus servicios de adoración, por favor incluye en sus oraciones la particular iglesia nombrada como la Iglesia de Llama, recordando y celebrando su vida y su ministerio.

La Llama de Unidad es una importante característica mientras que adoramos juntos, recordando que todos/as somos los/as hijos e hijas de nuestro Creador Dios.

–Rev. Linda L. Culbertson
General Presbiterio

    A nice explanation of the candle. I would like to add…it was created by Immanuel as part of its 100th Anniversary Celebration, Rev. Gary Wilburn, Pastor and Linda Rees, Administrative Assistant.
