PCUSA Social Ethics Network

Presbyterian Ethicists meet at SCE to discuss academic and denominational matters of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and for an update on current developments in social witness in the PCUSA and our Reformed relatives. SCE members participating on study commissions and serving as consultant writers for the denomination report on their projects. The impacts of church/seminary/college changes are discussed. Seminary and college ethicists comprise most of the group “Social Ethics Network” (or SEN—formerly “Theological Educators for Presbyterian Social Witness”)  which helps connect the academy to the denomination and the General Assembly, informing the life of congregations through policy studies and reports. The group sometimes meets in churches near the SCE annual meeting site. Liaison is provided by the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy, acswp@pcusa.org.
