Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Archbishop's Message for Millennium Development Goals

The American Episcopal Church is spending today fasting and praying for the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in response to the meetings being held in New York by religious leaders called The Interfaith Consultation on the Global Hunger Crisis.

Archbishop of Canterbury has published this video calling for a united human family to bring a message of hope to the suffering in the world. Archbishop Rowan says the basic Christian insight of the Body of Christ is the basis for which, “my neighbors suffering is my suffering and my neighbors welfare is my welfare. I can’t actually be happy or prosperous in the long run without my neighbor’s happiness and prosperity. And once again the New Testament reminds us that when one part of the body rejoices and flourishes the whole body rejoices and flourishes.”
