In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will join ecumenical and inter-religious partners for ACT to End Racism April 3-5 in Washington, D.C.  The focus of the three-day event will be a rally April 4 on the National Mall. All are invited to register and join in the event:  http://www.rally2endracism.org/register/  

 

The rally’s call to action emphasizes three key points: awaken to the truth that racism is evil and hurts us all; confront racism through truth-telling and action to right the wrong; and transform the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people and institutions. Events begin April 3 with an ecumenical worship service at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral and will be capped off by a lobby day on Capitol Hill April 5.  We challenge ourselves and our communities to join in truth-telling, leading to actions that right the wrongs, and, with God’s grace, bring healing and wholeness to all people, and unity to the nation.  

Several from GA plan to participate.

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.
