As a Presbyterian, you are connected with Presbyterians and ecumenical partners around the world through our membership in the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (EAA). EAA is a broad international network of churches and Christian organizations cooperating in advocacy on food and HIV and AIDS, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The Presbyterian Hunger Program serves on their Food for Life Campaign Strategy Group. Food for Life became the campaign focus following the Trade for People Campaign, and Presbyterians have been participating in the annual Weeks of Action to advocate for and help build a world where the right to food is universal.
This year we have a special connection to the Food for Life Campaign with the Rev. Dr. Randall Bush from East Liberty Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Penn. winning the “Food for Life” Sermon Competition! Rev. Bush will deliver his winning sermon at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva on October 17 during the Week of Action. Read his and the other highly-rated sermons and incorporate their insights in your own preaching and reflection.
Even if you've not participated before, here is your invitation to dig in!
