As you may have heard (especially if you were in church on 03.08 when Michael preached on how God can use foolishness to confound the powers of this world), POWER is organizing a FAST FOR FAMILY VALUES — to raise up the issue of Fair, Full Funding for our schools, our children our families!
Pennsylvania must not keep giving so many breaks to corporations — off the backs of our school children. Sign up here to participate by fasting one day (or more) to help draw attention to the urgent need for a Full, Fair Funding Formula. (Michael took a first day of fasting on Wed., 03.25).
Our schools need resources, but we cannot place a disproportionate burden on middle and low-income families. We need a moral economy, and our children are worth more!
We need individuals and congregations to sign up for dates. Michael is going to ask the Old First’s Local Organizing Committee to set a day when our whole church will be asked to fast. (Imagine the spiritual power and public impression we could make if the whole church fasted together onre day.)
Please sign up here and encourage your friends, family and other church members to do the same.
