Leslye and George, Rose City Park Pres

Do people identify systemic issues when you talk to them for Rev. Phil?
SuarezValera SuarezValera
43:29
Brother Phil. Protagonist participation from the people who are not recipients of assistance but the active collaborators
Rick Ufford-Chase
44:02
So good to get an update. I hope the church is feeling like a good fit. Seemed to me the discernment process went well for all involved this time. Our lives continue to be totally upended in ways we can’t fully sort out yet. There really is no business to speak of. Cut 40 of our 50 staff so far, and we may not be done. We’ll survive one way or another.
Phil Tom
45:38
People in the community tend to identify particular needs but in responding to the particular, we discuss the systems that create this problem. It is always a mutual learning for both the community and congregation.
Leslye and George, Rose City Park Pres
46:06
what books/studies/reports can you recommend re eradicating systemic poverty?
Chris FOSTER
46:36
look at the material in the poorpeoplescampaign.org

Thank you
Lucy Foster

A community group I'm in read the book Evicted. It opened my eyes to the cascade of consequences of this.
Gene Krebs
49:15
Phil Tom is correct. Affordable housing can, I repeat, can be driven by zoning issues. Someone asked for additional materials and books to read; "Bridges Out of Poverty" by Payne, DeVol & Druiesi-Smith
Gordon Glass
49:19
can there be active speaker mode activated
Lucy Foster
49:51
You do that on your end. Look at the top right

Jennifer Evans
51:37
Betty, thank you for your witness!
Winnie Davies-Hancock
52:24
I feel if we want to be catalysts for systemic change, we have to be involved in political=based activism to change socio-economic-institutional-political structures.
Cindy Reeder
52:26
Anyone on else on from New Brunswick Presbytery? Looking for partners mid NJ
Rebecca Barnes

Leslye and George, Rose City Park Pres
54:50
I AGREE WITH Winnie.
Rebecca Barnes
57:19
Yes, PCUSA stands with Poor People’s Campaign and it’s one great avenue to live out this call! They have lots of action and resource suggestions in addition to the many things we have at PCUSA. Thanks for mentioning them Chris Foster.
Winnie Davies-Hancock
57:33
Really interesting point about disasters exposing systemic poverty issues and those impact of.
Winnie Davies-Hancock
59:03
The Poor People's campaign is one way to be an advocate in pushing for institutionalize change.
Leslye and George, Rose City Park Pres
59:47
In Portland OR, churches have formed an Interfaith Alliance on Poverty. It is a coalition.. They recently put together a brochure on Systemic Poverity. You can find it on the web page.
Leslie Foltz-Morrison

Barbara Conner, St. Marys, GA
01:07:24
You are using a lot of acronyms that may need defining.
Laurie Kraus
01:07:45
Thank you for the reminder:
Jessica Fitzgerald
01:07:47
The church is filling the gaps the government refuses to admit. look at as a problem or fill the gap. We must advocate, educate and build relationships with those that are in the gaps not just relief. Blessed to be part of the PCUSA church.

Rebecca Barnes
01:09:32
Absolutely, thank you for your work Jessica as an Hunger Action Advocate in your presbytery! And we’re grateful to also collaborate with our PCUSA Office of Public Witness for action alerts and public policy advocacy skill-building and making our voices heard. Definitely necessary to have this component too!
Gene Krebs
01:10:03
Crises like pandemics or war, tend to accelerate trends that were gong to unfold over twenty years, and condense them down to twenty weeks.
Laurie Kraus

OGHS = One Great Hour of Sharing; the church-wide offering received during the Easter Season; the receipts fund the work of poverty alleviation, Self-development of people, and disaster response.

Very useful. Thanks
Matthew Ray
01:14:44
I wonder if the 192 corridor (near Disney) with all the vacant motels, might provide an opportunity for redevelopment into housing communities?
Matthew Ray
01:14:56
a thought I had about our local situation
DALE SMITH
01:15:34
repurposing vacant retail spaces into micro-apartments
Matthew Ray
01:16:29
and motels being constructed in a manner similar to apartments, could provide many amenities.
Rebekah Richey
01:17:22
Article about Rev Downey working in the 192 corridor in Orlando Sentinel today.
Matthew Ray
01:17:51
nice! I need to meet her someday. I’ve heard great things about her work.
Leslye and George, Rose City Park Pres
01:18:45

SuarezValera SuarezValera
01:18:53
Muchas gracias!
Heather Soper
01:19:02
thank you!! so much to consider
Winnie Davies-Hancock
01:19:12
Right. Just as with food in the U.S., the spaces exist to house people. We have to get legislators to address issues that impact the bigger issues and convince wealthy people and corporations to help fund the conversion of available space into good, affordable housing.
Rick Seifert
01:19:28
Have there been any programs on Congregational Vitality?
Lucy Foster
01:19:34
Can the recording of the other Matt 25 webinars be made available?
WILLIAM REYES
01:19:55
Health and wisdom to all!
Lauren Rogers, PC(USA)
01:20:12
We will see if we can include the recordings of the other webinars in the follow up email. Great suggestion!

01:22:25
NY Post had done an article about the poverty in Disney corridor and so Scott Maxwell wrote about that and some other times the poverty had been highlighted but so much still needs to be done.
Kathy Lee-Cornell
01:23:31
will there be another course offered in the future?
Lucy Foster
01:23:39
Thank you! Our congregation is just getting onto this.
Emily Odom
01:24:04
Next Matthew 25 program will be offered on October 28
Winnie Davies-Hancock
01:24:12
Since these events are on Zoom or other virtual platforms, what about holding them in the evening. As a teacher, a 2:00 isn't doable on a school day.
BARBARA SAYLES
01:24:24
my org has been providing healthy produce and dairy for the Disney workers Rebekah Richey referred to- endhunger.org
Lucy Foster
01:24:33
Yes, don't forget how many live in the west.
Rick Ufford-Chase
01:24:45
Yes - the courses will continue. This one will likely be packaged for folks who couldn’t do it in October. Stay tuned for further offerings of the Matthew 25 Curriculum in addition to these great sessions organized by Mission Engagement Services of the Mission Agency.
