On Thursday, September 24, at 5:00 PST, the ELCA is hosting a nation-wide Zoom event – the first of its kind—for ELCA World Hunger.
Rick Steves, guidebook author and travel TV host, the Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA and the Rev. Shelly Bryan Wee, bishop of the ELCA Northwest Washington Synod will be hosting this event. At this event, you will learn about the unique ways ELCA World Hunger is responding to the global hunger crisis, worsened in recent weeks by the global pandemic. The hosts will also discuss the ongoing root causes of hunger and poverty addressed in Rick Steves’ recent PBS special Hunger and Hope. And you will hear from ELCA World Hunger Partners on the front lines of the current hunger crisis, who will tell you firsthand how your gifts make a difference.
We are called by God to share hope in this time of challenge. Join me and other throughout the ELCA to face this global hunger crisis head-on and to continue moving toward a just world where all as fed. The link to register for this event is:
