Church in the World Committee is inviting members of the Skyline congregation to participate in a new table ritual to help elevate our consciousness around the many issues that relate to hunger and food justice. We invite you, in this season of plenty, to place a container on your breakfast table/dining table or wherever you most commonly take your meals and add a penny to your container at every meal. As you do, remember those who do not have enough to eat. Think about those who farmed the land to grow the food we eat and those who labor, often under harsh working conditions, to harvest it. Let the Penny-A-Meal be part of your ritual of gratitude for the plenty that most of us are privileged to enjoy.
We would like this to become an ongoing part of our daily practice in every Skyline home. Periodically we will ask you to bring your pennies to church and they will be given to the Alameda County Food Bank. You will be surprised at how those pennies can add up! The first collection of this special offering will be on Souper Bowl Sunday and will be taken by our children.
In gratitude and service,
Your Church In the World Team
