If you like hyperbole, consider this statement. The workshop for the 2012 Offering of Letters is more important than ever! While I exaggerate a bit, I think you might have some questions after you look at your Offering of Letters packet. At first glance, it seems straightforward. The campaign is called Expanding the Circle of Protection, and you know how much this concept has been at the center of Bread for the World's advocacy efforts for nearly a year. But we are given options on areas in which we can focus our energies.
- Domestic Nutrition Assistance Programs
- Poverty Focus Foreign Assistance
- Tax Credit for Low-Income Families
- International Food Aid Programs
- Circle of Protection Overall Campaign
You might have some questions on which one of these topics is more important for our legislative efforts in New Mexico. (And you might want to know that your church can do offerings on more than one of these.)
So if you're confused, uncertain, or simply want something clarified, Bread for the World western region organizer Robin Stephenson will be on hand at our Offering of Letters workshop. Here are the details:
Sunday, March 18
5301 Ponderosa Ave. NE
(near Comanche and San Mateo)
2:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m.
In keeping with our theme of the Circle of Protection, Rev. Kay Huggins will offer a reflection based on the Book of Isaiah.
See you there!
