The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. The stories in the 2013 Mission Yearbook were gathered around the question of Jesus to his disciples, “How many loaves have you?” from Mark 6:38. The book is filled with stories of God’s abundance in the face of overwhelming needs and a scarcity of resources.

PRESBYTERY OF EAST TENNESSEE - Loaves and Fishes is a biannual event sponsored by the Presbytery of East Tennessee to develop and enrich its member congregations and the community, with worship, workshops, and opportunities for fellowship.
The theme for the March 2012 event, “Food for the Soul,” was chosen as a counterpoint to the divisions so prevalent in our church today. We should all be able to agree on two things: food is necessary for survival, and the suffering caused by lack of food is intolerable. Food and faith are interwoven on nearly every page of the Bible. Table fellowship was central to Jesus’ ministry with his disciples, and the modern church more than ever must embrace table fellowship as a unifying act.
