That’s the sound, or lack thereof, that is coming from official Web sites of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in response to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church’s historic action Friday to set up transitional presbyteries for the New Wineskins Association churches. Nothing at the Office of the General Assembly, nothing at the Presbyterian News Service, nothing at Presbyterian Outlook (which posted a story yesterday afternoon, but couldn’t get it together to cover one of the most important events in Presbyterian life in recent years). I’ve also checked a variety of “progressive” Presbyterian sites, including the Witherspoon Society, More Light Presbyterians, and That All May Freely Serve, and have yet to find any mention of what’s happening. Given that they’ve known what was coming for months, it’s hard to believe that none of them had anything prepared, or didn’t consider it worth commenting on. Well, we’ll see what the first of the week brings.
