Intern and Duke Divinity School student Lisa Talbott learned a lot in her year working on social justice issues with the Council. It was a physical journey, from Alaska to North Carolina, and a spiritual one, as well.
Lisa agreed to write the Council’s spring appeal letter because she felt so strongly about her work with us and what she had gained from it. She says in part:
Social justice issues may be political, but they are also theological. Our faith impacts what we eat, how we treat others, and how we care for the temples of the Holy Spirit that are our bodies. The work I did with the North Carolina Council of Churches changed my outlook.
Lisa made great contributions to the Council, and we’re grateful for the talents she shared with us. We hope you will agree with her about the value of our work and show your support by donating online or by mailing a check to the NCCC, 27 HORNE St., Raleigh, 27607.
