One Great Hour of Sharing

Date: 
March 26, 2017 (All day)

The OGHS special mission offering of the United Church of Christ involves you in disaster, refugee/immigration, and development ministries throughout the world. When a disaster strikes or people are displaced or made refugees, you are part of the immediate response and of the long-term recovery. Through OGHS you engage in holistic development programs including health care, education, agriculture, food sustainability, micro-financing, and women’s empowerment. You meet immediate needs and you address the underlying causes that create those needs in the first place. Rock Spring will formally accept the offering in worship on March 26, but contributions can be made throughout the month to Rock Spring via check with OGHS in the memo line, online through the church’s website, or via Givelify app with designation Special Offering - OGHS.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
