All one must do to realize the great and ongoing needs of many in the world at large, as well as in our community, is read the headlines, listen to the news, read one of Patti’s Street Roots papers or otherwise turn a sentient conscience to the world around us.
This year’s Peacemaking & Global Witness Special Offering will be asking us all to thoughtfully and prayerfully consider what we might contribute to aid those in such need as we might only be able to imagine, keeping in mind that 50% of those monies we donate will be used here in Portland for causes that we all deem more than just worthy.
You can certainly contribute online or use one of the envelopes in the pew racks for this purpose.
Your Social Action Committee will be offering up Minutes for Mission during the services leading up to Sunday, October the 7th, our denomination’s designated Peacemaking and Global Witness Sunday.
Thank you in advance for such generosity as you are able to share.
