Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty
Our adult Sunday School class is starting a new study on this renowned 2009 book, where we’ll connect this global issue with the roots of our faith and discuss ways in which we can begin to make a difference.
“Since the green revolution, we have known how to grow enough food to end chronic hunger worldwide. Yet more than 9 million people every year die of hunger, malnutrition, and related diseases-most of them children in Africa. In this powerful investigative narrative, two award-winning Wall Street Journal reporters show how, in the past few decades, American and European policies conspired to keep the world’s poorest people hungry and unable to feed themselves. Enough is essential reading on a humanitarian issue of utmost urgency.”
Books are available in the church office, with a $15 suggested donation as you’re able. Join our adult Sunday school group, 9:30 on Sunday mornings!
Junior and Senior High Youth are invited to:
Youth Night at Olympic View
Every Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Thursday, May 21: This week, we celebrate the story of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came to Jesus’s disciples in the form of fire. Fire not only gives heat and light, it also cleanses, so we will be reflecting on things in our lives that we may want to let go of to serve Jesus better, and symbolically giving those things to the flames. (We may also play some hoop in the park – join us!)
Experience spirit-filled gathering in community, art-making, games, movies, outings, and much more. Meet new friends, ask questions, share stories, eat great food, and have fun!
