On January 23, I gathered with about 150 ELCA partners to discuss and take action to address the impact of hunger in communities.

The four-day ELCA World Hunger Leadership Gathering, “Until All are Fed,” was filled with learning, direct advocacy work, shared stories and faithful time dwelling in the Word.

With Esther 4:14, filling our hearts, we listened, we strategized and then faithfully walked together to bring our Farm Bill priorities to our senators and representatives.

This comprehensive bill, which is still in discussion in Congress, impacts nutrition, production and research.

This is an active discussion that we can impact with our united voices!  Connect with your senators and representative, “for just a time as this.” Esther 4:14.
