Do you love a bargain and hate to miss a deadline? Register today for Bread for the World’s 2013 National Gathering on June 8-11 and save almost 20 percent. The National Gathering will be wonderful.

You'll hear powerful speakers: Rev. Dr. James Forbes, senior pastor emeritus of the Riverside Church in New York City, whom Newsweek magazine called one of the top preachers in the English-speaking world, will preach at the Sunday, June 9 worship service. On June 10, Rev. David Beckmann, World Food Prize laureate and president of Bread for the World, will talk about the journey ahead to end hunger. Visit www.bread.org/gathering to learn about the workshops and speakers.

You'll meet powerful people: Barbie Izquierdo and Pastor Bob Wilson and his wife, Michaelene — whom you’ve seen in the documentary A Place at the Table — will meet and greet you after they talk about their experiences with hunger and their calls to advocacy. You can hear from and meet Rev. Luis Cortes, Jr., founder and president of Esperanza, whom Time magazine has called one of the world’s most influential evangelicals. Dr. Rajiv Shah, administrator of USAID, will be a keynote speaker at the international meeting focused on maternal and child nutrition. We will join more than 150 participants at that meeting — at which significant announcements regarding maternal and child nutrition will be made.

You'll witness great things: Enjoy the exciting musical Lazarus, which is based on a message from God. The original music and words are by Joel Underwood, former director of Church Relations at Bread. Bill Cummings has written new music and arrangements—you’ll be singing as you leave the theater. It all takes place at the beautiful Mead Center, home of the award-winning Arena Stage.

You'll do great things: Act on your faith collectively — with others from around the nation — during Lobby Day, June 11, the culmination of the National Gathering.

Register today. Come hear and meet these amazing, inspirational speakers, and join us as we work to set a place at God’s abundant table for everyone.

Dr. Alice Walker Duff is managing director of Bread for the World
