“It is more blessed to GIVE than to receive.”
In this time of uncertainty and anxiety, a natural impulse is to turn inward, to protect ourselves, and to hoard our gifts. However, our faith calls us to reach out in love to others both in good times and in bad times. Right now, we can’t physically reach out beyond our front doors, but we can reach out in other ways. We can pray for the sick, for a quick end to the pandemic, and for guidance and strength for everyone, including our leaders and ourselves. We can contact those who are alone and lonely. We may be able to share our money. While many among us are facing financial hardships, not all of us are. If you are able to donate funds during this difficult time, I encourage you to continue your financial support of our church. Even though for now we are not meeting together on Sunday mornings, Penn Wynne Presbyterian Church still needs to pay its employees, to maintain its property, and to pay its bills.
Help Feed The Hungry
We are called to love our neighbors, and that means feeding them when they are hungry.
In Philadelphia, the homeless are suffering as many services for them have had to close or severely curtail the help they can offer during the pandemic. But hunger does not happen only to the homeless in the city. Many of our neighbors in comfortable homes are unemployed and struggling to feed their families. They will go to bed hungry tonight and they will wake up hungry tomorrow. Parents are skipping meals in order to feed their children. Please prayerfully consider what you can contribute to feed our hungry neighbors. Your financial offering to this cause will go directly to food banks and local resources helping those in need.
