A Lenten Invitation from Shadyside

For many, the season of Lent is a somber one, beginning with Ash Wednesday’s solemn reminder of our mortality. The Reverend Austin Crenshaw Shelley, Senior Pastor of Shadyside Presbyterian Church, invites us to consider faith’s profound reassurance as we reflect on our relationships with God and with one another throughout these forty days. The journey to Easter reveals the depths of God’s love for us, demonstrating just how much our lives are treasured by our Creator. You are welcome to join us on this journey, either in person or online, as we explore together what it means to be God’s beloved.

Transfigured Christ

Mosaic By Rudolf Sheffler, 1938

When Rudolf Sheffler's majestic mosaic of the Transfigured Christ in the apse of our chancel was dedicated on Easter Sunday 1938, it became in many ways not only a visual focal point of our sanctuary but also symbolic of our 150 years of faith and life together as the people of God! It is a powerful metaphor of our Christian identity, purpose and unity!
