2019 Bread for the World Sunday
Gather with us Sunday, Oct. 13 for Bread for the World Sunday when Resurrection joins other congregations in offering prayers for those who suffer from hunger in our own country and abroad. We pray for decision makers who can change the policies and conditions that allow hunger to persist.
Our prayers are especially urgent at this time. In the United States, one in six children faces the threat of hunger. Worldwide, nearly one in four children endures the lifelong sentence of stunting because of chronic malnutrition.
You will also have the opportunity to write to your senators and representative. As Resurrection people, we have an opportunity to make a world of difference by writing a letter. All necessary materials will be provided in the area in front of Resurrection Hall. You can write your own letter or add a personal statement to a preprinted letter. You don’t need to be a “writer” to write, and each personalization we add demonstrates an extra level of commitment to our senators and representatives.
Please plan on joining us, Sunday Oct. 13!
More About Bread for the World Sunday
The strength of Bread for the World is found in our shared commitment to address the root cause of hunger: poverty, discrimination based on race and gender, unemployment, immigration, mass incarceration, and economic inequality. On Bread for the World Sunday, we recognize and give thanks for the work churches, community groups, and denominations are all doing to remove the obstacles that keep people from sharing in God’s abundance. We celebrate the diversity of faith traditions across race, ethnicity, and culture that are working together to end hunger. Moved by God’s love in Jesus Christ, we reach out in love to our neighbors—and we help create a better future for all.
