Food and Justice

And who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10: 29)

What does it mean to love our neighbors as ourselves when many around us are suffering the effects of a damaged economy? When our nation is grappling with racism on personal and structural levels?

Some here are reading “So You Want to Talk About Race?” (by Ijeoma Oluo) together in coming weeks, and discussing what it means for us.

Some are contributing to a special Food & Justice offering, to be divided between the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Route One Communities Care (an effort to support some of our small local restaurants & their staff, who will be paid to prepare free meals for those experiencing food insecurity in our neighborhood.)

Some among us are helping to fill the Little Free Community Cupboard outside the church — a pantry to which neighbors are also contributing, and from which anyone in need may draw.

Feel free to contact the church if you’d like to participate in any of these steps!

We are continuing to meet via Zoom on Sunday mornings. You can join us from your computer or by telephone for sharing and worship.  If you’re interested in being part of this time, contact us at upcob@aol.com and we’ll send instructions.
