Lou Ness, Episcopalian deacon and director of Shelter Care Ministries, will lead an informal discussion about her walk from Rockford to Washington, D.C. on Saturday, August 16, 10:00 a.m., at JustGoods Fair Trade market gallery. Fair trade coffee and tea will be provided.
Lou spent two months walking the 930+ miles from Rockford to our nation’s capital to deliver a message of compassion for the poor and homeless. “I know that the impoverished families we serve need a voice. When one of us suffers, we all suffer and how we treat the least among us is a reflection of who we are.”
This program is free and open to the public. You are invited to bring a love offering for Shelter Care Ministries as well as treats to pass.
This will be the first in a series of Saturday morning discussions. If you have suggestions or would like to offer a program, please contact the Rockford Urban Ministries’ office at 815/964-7111.
