Our special offering on Sunday, March 30, unites us with all who are in need.  The gifts that we offer today will be used for concrete ministries that further God’s work in the world.  In Matthew 25, Jesus told his disciples where to focus their ministry: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, visit the sick and imprisoned.  Those deemed righteous wondered when they served their Lord in all these ways.  He explained, “Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”  Our One Great Hour of Sharing offering makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities in the United States and around the world who suffer from disaster, conflict, or poverty.  Together we provide disaster relief, health care, education, job training, shelter, schools, clean water, and food.  Our offering to One Great Hour of Sharing helps meet needs that make the headlines and needs that the headlines ignore.  We give to this ministry on March 30 (or any other Sunday), but the good work done by our gifts gives life again, and again, and lasts much longer.  Share today and know you are one with your sisters and brothers around the world.  Thank you for sharing!
