how will we access resources to help?
Our church is continuing to give out food to people experiencing hunger during this crisis. I find this a challenge in terms of balancing the need and desire to help with the awareness that when I go to the church, I am also exposing the others in my home. This is a time of difficult decisions, and the need for support.
How do we support frontline workers, especially those thata are historically undervalued by our economy? For example of course Nurses and doctors, but also what about maintenance and cleaning staff.
We have a food give away at my church, but we observe the 6 ft rule and let people get what they want. Also if more than 10 come we ask some to wait outside. I wear a mask and gloves. I feel safe doing this
I am so glad Shirley raised that question. I am working with a program that receives Feeding American food (now in a different way than the serving and community) to food insecure people and homeless people. We have gloves and stay far apart and trying to be safe, but I find this a challenge though I live alone. I am not exposing people at home but I want to reach out too
Last week my Bread for the World group also was very involved in advocacy and we used phone calls, zoom, calls with our Representatives, emails etc and tomorrow we will have a Corona Virus Update/Bread Southeast Regional Seminar. Purpose: share info, policy agenda, organizing updates, Marlysa Gamblin focuses on specific populations at BFW to address impact of coronavirus on black and brown communities. Any interested could join us.
We are having church services and Bible studies on line. But how do we be church in other ways without spreading illness?
To become part of the webinar, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Really want to let them know about this SOJO Journey

Hello Everyone, here's the link Adam is talking about https://sojo.net/covid-19-coverage
I have been making lots of phone calls to parishioners who do not have Facebook or even internet. I am preparing a letter now to also mail out. Our congregation is very small.
Next week First Aid Arts will be sharing resources to help deal with “trauma” people are feeling. Organizer working out of Mexico City so want to connect you to her Sandy.
I love that we are working in tandem
will this chat be available later or should we copy the resource links?
Virtually in person...
Thank you so much
Be well, everyone
Thank you and God Bless you.
