"Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well." Philippians 2:4
A few weeks ago, I wondered in the middle of a sermon what we, as a church, might do in response to the refugee crisis in Middle East and Europe. The next morning, I received an e-mail from Church World Service about supporting their work in this regard. I next remembered that I had pressed the ministerium to continue to sponsor the Crop Walk at our meeting and that Church World Service received the money raised by CROP. Thanks for providing such a quick answer to my question, God of Life! While some of this year’s money raised by Crop will go to disaster relief in South Carolina and to also to feed the hungry, much of it will also go to providing shelter to displaced people, work that Church World Service has been involved in for decades. Some of the money we raised last year by the Crop Walk has already gone to serve those fleeing war and persecution in middle east. This year’s walk will be at the YMCA on Nov. 8th with registration at 1:30 p.m. and the Walk starting at 2 p.m. Thank you for your support for this important church mission.
