Poverty Weekend

This Saturday and Sunday, January 21st and 22nd, is “Poverty Weekend” as a part of the larger “Poverty in America Awareness Month” being promoted by the Partnership to End Poverty. For this upcoming weekend Greg forwarded the link to the document (PDF) that talks about it:

As part of this awareness campaign, during the weekend of January 21-22, 2012, people of faith across Central Oregon will be discussing poverty, its effects on people and our communities, the barriers people face and our commitments to help. We are calling this weekend, “Poverty Weekend.”

The culmination of this weekend will be an interfaith U2charist service held at First Presbyterian Church in Bend, Sunday, January 22, 2012. This service, featuring U2 music and with a free-will offering for Bethlehem Inn, will be held at 5:01, followed by a light meal and a community discussion on the Occupy Movement.

All are welcome for the Sunday service, of course, and for more information on that you can contact 541-382-4401.
