Reflection piece by Ann Jones from First Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Indiana. Part of the HIV/AIDS mission toolkit.
Isaiah 58 describes a new kind of fast, not to give up bread but to share it. Isaiah calls us to “loose the bonds of injustice,” to “let the oppressed go free,” to “share bread with the hungry” and to “invite the homeless poor into our homes.” We are called to offer help to those in need and restoration to those who have been broken down. One way we answer this call is through our gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing.
Your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing enable the Presbyterian Hunger Program to take action to alleviate hunger, care for creation, and address the system causes of poverty so that all may be fed. Please give generously.
Your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing enable Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to respond immediately after natural or human-caused disasters like the devastating hurricanes last year. Please give generously.
Your One Great Hour of Sharing gifts help the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People (SDOP) to partner with economically poor people in projects they present, control, own, and are the direct beneficiaries to address oppression and injustice. Please give generously.
The church is the Holy Spirit’s transforming power emanating into the world sharing the compassion, justice, love, and peace of Christ. Presbyterians join the movement of the Spirit into every corner of the Earth — and in this season, through our church-wide One Great Hour of Sharing.
How would you like to help form the faith of your children, youth, young adults, adults, families, and neighbors in ways that are life-giving, relevant, and practical? Often the first step is to talk about it; you simply have to “put it out there” and “start the conversation!”
