Oh, I will also worship during Lent, do daily devotions and a weekly fast, and take part in our Lenten study. But part of our devotion to God is to care for God’s people. In Isaiah 58 God asks: Is not the fast I choose to loose the bonds of injustice, to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house?
I have selected five organizations about which I have personal knowledge, ones I trust to use my gifts faithfully. Each meets the needs of vulnerable people and bears witness to the good we can do together. Each week I will pray for one organization and the people it serves. May all God’s children have strength, abundance and dignity.
