I thought I would take a moment to share with you what has inspired me this morning.
First of all… most of our congregation’s mission budget supports the work of the Wilkinsburg Community Ministry; here is an update:
WCM Food Pantry Weekly Numbers
Number of People Picking Up
Number of People in a Household
Total People being served
Total Food Bank Lbs per Week
Total Lbs per person per week
WCM is our very busy mission arm into the local community. Two ways to support them are to call 412-241-8072 and offer to volunteer. If you are under 65 years old – you could probably help out. OR. Go to the WCM website to donate www.wcm15221.org Thank you.
Secondly, I love this quote from Pope Francis, his heart is with the people – a role model for all world leaders.
“Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is…Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you.”
Grace and peace everyone,
