Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

40 Letters in 40 days: Lenten Devotions

Wednesday, April 13

 Check out this status update from Robyn Hartwig, associate pastor at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Beaverton, OR:

“Inspired by our congregation's letter-writing campaign with Bread for the World to help reform foreign aid to make it more effective at reducing poverty, I am taking on letter-writing to public officials as my Lenten discipline. I need 40 letters in 40 days, so please share your current policy concerns (preferably those with current policy decisions pending) for which I might write additional letters. Thanks!”

As Lent winds down, we invite you to take up the “discipline” of letter-writing to elected officials. Will you commit to writing one letter? Five letters? What “current policy concerns” will you write about?

Robin Stephenson is Western field organizer with Bread for the World.
