Still time to plan for Bread for the World Sunday

There is still time to involve your church or faith community in Bread for the World Sunday on October 18 – or another Sunday in the fall.  If you haven’t ordered or downloaded your resources yet, please order them today. Free Bread for the World Sunday Resources

More than 2,000 congregations have already received their free resources.

Some churches devote an entire worship service to Bread for the World Sunday.  Others simply use one or more of the suggested prayers to remember the needs of hungry people. 

I hope your church will do whatever is possible for you. 

Every Bread for the World Sunday order includes a reflection resource with a meditation on Mark 10:35-45 by Rev. John Buchanan, editor and publisher of the Christian Century.  Here is a brief excerpt:

“It’s all right to want to be great.  But greatness is not what you think.  It’s not about sitting at the right and left hand of the king.  It’s not about having lots of money or even lots of professional success.  In God’s kingdom, which Jesus believes is now the operational reality in the world, greatness is measured by service.  ‘Whoever wants to be great must be the servant of all.’” 

Participating in Bread for the World Sunday enables your congregation to join thousands of other congregations around the country as we remember those who live in hunger and poverty.  I hope you will join us.
