This is a means for us to evaluate our lives in light of the kingdom message of Jesus. Our time on Wednesday will allow for those of you who have read the third to help lead us in conversation. We encourage engagement for those who have not read the material as well.

... our may 9 gathering...

Sara Cook, ONE Campaign Faith Outreach Organizer

The ONE Campaign is a coalition of more than two million faith-based and anti-poverty groups, churches, celebrities, and individuals who have partnered to tackle the emergency of global AIDS, widespread hunger, and extreme poverty. The ONE Campaign has grown by leaps and bounds since its launch in 2004 and has provided people in the United States with an unprecedented opportunity to use our collective influence to advocate for those who are poor and hungry in other parts of the world.

ONE has particularly resonated with Christians, providing people from diverse church backgrounds with a practical opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ on an international scale. I serve as the ONE Campaign Faith Outreach Organizer for Bread for the World, a faith-based voice against hunger and a founding member of the ONE Campaign. My job is to spread the word of the ONE campaign to churches and colleges, as well as to help ONE members educate and empower their faith communities around ONE Campaign issues. To learn more about the ONE Campaign and related faith-based resources, go to:

Because the Emerging Church (and the Emergent Cohorts!) seem to be tackling some of the big issues that have traditionally gone untouched by the wider church, I thought that a conversation about global poverty and the Church ' s role in addressing it might be an interesting one for the Cohort. I am based in Datyon, but will be doing some work in Michigan this spring.

Sara will be joining us to lead our conversation on May 9, 10:30 a.m.
