April Outreach: One Great Hour of Sharing
More Than We Can Imagine it is easy to feel overwhelmed when we look at all the areas of need in God’s world: there is hunger, sickness and injustice in so many communities. It is easy to become trapped in hopelessness and fear that what little we can do won’t have an impact.
But there is hope and we are that hope. Archbishop Desmond Tutu stated: “We are the agents for transformation that God uses to transfigure the world.” By working in community, and for us that is the United Church of Christ community, we can accomplish more than we can imagine.”
Where there is earthquake, refugee crisis, typhoon or famine, One Great Hour of Sharing is there as part of the mission of the entire Christian church. The statistics and realities that we learn of through our news media may lie beyond our comprehension, but the people who live them are not beyond our collective hearts. OGHS donations fund sustainable development, refugee and disaster ministries. This ministry goes the extra mile to respond, to stay for the long term, and to work on root causes because we are walking with those who are forced to go many extra miles simply to survive and, along the way, to thrive.
“Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40)
Your gift, placed in the yellow or blue envelope and noted OGHS can and will make a difference – more than you can imagine.
