Day 24: 29 Days of Gratitude

This Sunday (February 24th) is one of our monthly "Donate-the-Plate" Sundays. One Sunday per month we dedicate the offering to a worthy cause. This month our collection will go to The Healthy Living Project. Healthy Living is an organization that does HIV testing, prevention, and education work with gay men. It also provides other services.

Our congregation has a long history with Healthy Living. Currently, several members of our church are on its board and one of our members is its Executive Director.

On this day we express gratitude to all those who work in the realms of community outreach and social justice.

In addition to coming to church and putting something in the offering basket, you may wish to also find a way to express gratitude for those who dedicate so much energy to helping our world become more peaceful, fair, free, equitable, and compassionate.
