"I woke up thirty minutes before my alarm. I guess that happens when you’re tired of waiting for something. You wake up. You get out of bed and lace up your shoes, and then you start walking.
This morning at 8 am a group of nearly 40 youth and college students gathered to walk eight miles for racial justice. We picked the number eight for the eight minutes that George Floyd was pinned to the ground. And as we walked, we talked. With every mile we passed, the youth team texted out a reflection question for the group to the discussion. A few examples include:
All in all, what we know is that the walk for justice is not easy. It will be long, hard, and sometimes- because we live in Texas- it will be hot. However, what continues to be crystal clear is the need to set aside time to reflect, apologize, think and dream, so that one day our youth might not have to walk in the streets for justice."
Through all of that, here’s what some of our youth took away from this morning’s walk:

Today was Zach Light-Well's last Sunday. After Youth Worship in the House, our youth gathered online to say goodbye.
At the very end, Rev. Sarah Are asked Zach what one message he would like to leave with the youth, and this is what he said:
"Something that you will learn, or maybe you're learning right now, is that not everywhere in the world is going to be as welcoming as the youth house has been. Some places will exclude people, divide people, and separate people. Some places will say "you're not enough, you're not good enough"
So I want to say- take what you have come to know in the youth house, which is that all people are children of God. All people are Christ Bearers. All people are made in the image of God- people of every gender, skin color and sexual orientation are beloved. And I want you to take this righteous love into the streets, into your classrooms, into your families and into your broken relationships, because I believe this radical inclusivity and love is going to be what changes the world. And I'm not just saying that. I think that's the only answer right now.
So as I leave this church family, I want to empower you to keep doing that, keep living this truth with boldness, courage and creativity. Love one another."
Good luck in all your new adventures, Zach!

Gracious God, Your generosity floods the world with goodness and you shower creation with abundance. As we receive the gifts of this table, awaken in us a thirst for water that satisfied both body and heart. As we believe in the miracle of belonging to you, may we be empowered to belong to one another. In Christ, we pray, Amen. We’re celebrating communion at all services this weekend! Bake some special bread this weekend, or use whatever you have on hand at home. #communion #pcusa #presbyterian #bread
The PHPC Care Ministry will begin a virtual grief support group beginning June 23. “Good Grief” will meet on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 via Zoom. Rev. Mark Brainerd and Mahlon Hight will lead the group and materials will be provided via email. We are in a unique time. You may have experienced significant losses, but because of the pandemic, had to put everything on hold. This period of grieving has only been complicated by world events and it is important to move forward with grieving even while being socially distanced. Coming together with others is one way to move forward with grief in a healthy way. The cost of “Good Grief” is $25 and scholarships are available. Registration and payment must happen by June 21.Contact Tammy Hale with questions, [email protected] and sign up and pay here: https://prestonhollow.wufoo.com/forms/z1e2o74j0ynbi78/

Not in the dark of buildings confining
Not in some heaven light years away
But here in this place the new light is shining
Now is the kingdom, now is the day
Gather us in and hold us forever
Gather us in and make us your own
Gather us in, all peoples together
Fire of love in our flesh and our bones

In 1948, the Presbytery had a goal of planting five new churches, and they wanted to build a church in the expanding Preston Hollow neighborhood. David Pittinger was a seminary intern working for the summer at Highland Park Presbyterian, and that summer, he knocked on every door in the Preston Hollow neighborhood. Those connected groups of families eventually formed Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church. David, as a summer intern, poured his life and soul into helping form our community. That’s how the spirit of God works - it starts small. An ember that burns within, then a mighty rush, then it gets bigger and bigger and bigger, until all of creation is encompassed by God. That’s what we celebrate on this Pentecost Sunday. The gift of the Holy Spirit, appearing in tongues of fire - all that seeks to divide us gets blown down by the winds of the spirit. #pentecost #virtualworship #onlineworship #pcusa #phpc @ Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church

Rev. Dr. Sarah Johnson leads our annual Racial Justice and Equity Pilgrimage, alongside Rev. Dr. Michael Waters of Abundant Life AME Church. In a new blog, she writes about recent events in the context of her experience on the pilgrimage, as well as the theological connections between the cross and a lynching tree. You can click the link below to read her full piece.
“In his prolific book, The Cross and the Lynching Tree, theologian James Cone writes, “I believe that the cross placed alongside the lynching tree can help us to see Jesus in America in a new light, and thereby empower people who claim to follow him to take a stand against white supremacy and every kind of injustice.”
The ongoing and distinctive loss of black life in America is a narrative we cannot afford to forget or ignore. Instead, white supremacy is a condition of our current reality worthy of our lament, our confession, and our alternative witness as common citizens and people of faith.”

"These days, church involves pajamas. It involves a cup of coffee, me curled up on the couch, and a text message passing of the peace. It involves Facebook comments, an open laptop, and a strong internet connection.
And while I love all of those things, the thing I love the most about my new Sunday morning rhythm is that it now involves Worship in the House too." Click the link below to read more from Sarah Are about Virtual Worship in the House! https://www.phpc.org/phpc-blog/virtual-worship-in-the-house/
