Friends in Faith,
Harvest season is upon us. From CROP hunger walks to a national Fair Food Day of Prayer to Christian education webinars on food justice, Christian communities all over the U.S. are making it a priority in October to walk, learn, advocate, and pray for a day when all are fed.
If only we could say the same about the election 2012 candidates. Last night, poverty was barely mentioned in the presidential debate. Christian voters must continue to keep the concerns of Matthew 25 central to election conversations. This edition of our newsletter contains some ideas on how.
Grace and Peace,
