Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Hunger a Weapon of Mass Destruction

James_schackel_photo_8_08_st_mark_sPresident Lula de Silva of Brazil states: "Hunger is actually the worst weapon of mass destruction.  It claims millions of victims each year." 

St. Mark, Salem, Oregon, battles hunger by hosting a Sunday soup kitchen, selling fair trade coffee and chocolate, supporting an AIDS orphanage in Tanzania, and participating in the Salem InterFaith Hospitality Network.  We also plan Thanksgiving and Christmas giving activities.  This Sunday was the congregation's first Offering of Letters.



Here's the report:

Participants 36

Sign ups 24

Letters produced 42

Crew about a dozen

Fellowship and mission:  priceless
