The Episcopal Church, in conjunction with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, has create a program called “For Such a Time a This: Pray, Fast, Act.” On the 21st of each month, the date when federal food assistance benefits run out for many households, Episcopalians join in fasting, prayer, and advocacy. Each month has a different social issue to be explored.
September 19th will be our first “For Such a Time as This” program, and the focus is “Becoming Beloved Community,” the Episcopal Church’s anti-racism initiative. We will meet at 11:30 for the healing service, which will include special prayers. At noon, bring your lunch and join us in the Choir Room for lunch and learn time. We will watch a short video about Becoming Beloved Community, engage in discussion, and follow-up with hands-on advocacy efforts.
