If you have not already done so, please mark your calendar for Saturday, April 5. You will not want to miss the Bread for the World NC Conference in Greensboro entitled, “Ending Hunger: Compassion Igniting Justice.”
The line-up of speakers includes, Frank Stasio, host of The State of Things on North Carolina Public Radio, The Rev. J. Herbert Nelson, Director of the Presbyterian Church (USA) Office of Public Witness in Washington, D.C., Gene Nichol, Distinguished Professor & Director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity in the UNC School of Law, and Rev. Dr. Chuck Campbell, of Duke Divinity School.
This event is being planned by the Bread Leadership Team of the Triad, which seeks to educate about hunger and advocate for legislation to help hungry people in North Carolina and around the world.
Through our work with congregations across the state, Partners in Health and Wholeness seeks to promote health as a faith issue, encouraging and equipping people of faith to cultivate lives of health and wholeness within the church and the surrounding community. To live a full and abundant life, basic needs must be met. So, health is also a justice issue. Partners in Health and Wholeness is co-sponsoring the event and will be sharing with participants the impacts of food insecurity on health. We can join together as people of faith to ensure food, healthy food, is available to everyone through the policies that affect so many of our neighbors.
