      3 resources about Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Roman Catholic
      Church, and United Methodist.


      The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly is happening in
      Louisville, KY (June 9-16). Following is news of two groups, the IRD

      Representatives of the Institute for Religion and Democracy (IRD)
