We will be taking our our special UCC offering for “One Great Hour of Sharing” this Sunday which supports disaster, refugee, and development actions.
“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) God is most tangibly present in this world where people hunger, thirst, lack adequate clothing and shelter, and are sick or imprisoned. Christ claims people who suffer as family members. Christ is so present in them that when you feed the hungry, care for the sick, welcome the stranger – you feed, and care for, and welcome Christ. When you give through One Great Hour of Sharing to those who suffer from natural disasters, war, or systemic poverty, you let them know: You are here.
