Martin Luther King Day of Service
On Monday six Bread-ites participated in MLK Day, taking “a day on rather than a day off.” They worked making sack lunches and hygiene kits for persons who are homeless, cleaning up at an in-house hospice facility, and helping with the luncheon for all the volunteers at the end of the day. Seven hundred volunteers showed up because they believe in Dr. Martin Luther
It was an amazing day! We began with worship at Baker Chapel AME Church. The church was full and looking out at the congregation was inspiring. Rev. Carly Hughes said, “This is what we are supposed to look like.” And indeed it is.
We may not all look like Dr. King, but still believe the same thing—we can make a difference in our community, our churches and our world if our hearts and minds are united in love. It can change the world.
Watch for details about our Lenten Study beginning with an Ash Wednesday Service on February 14.
Bread Ministries and Missions
We will pack lunches, once again, for the Tarrant Churches Together Rodeo Chuck Wagon. Many day laborers work at the stock show—if they purchase a lunch they use much of their hard-earned money. Several years ago TCT started providing a sack lunch for each worker so they don’t have to spend any money on lunch. We will be packing the lunches the last Sunday of January. TCT provides some of the supplies and we purchase the rest. Watch for the list of items we need to provide.
