“Happy are they who regard the poor and needy!” (Psalm 41:1) Two quick observations about this common biblical exhortation (Galatians 2:10, James 1:27): First, it is easy to do what this passage warns against and forget the poor rather than regard the poor. Second, this passage identifies those who do the regarding as beneficiaries; not those who are being regarded. When I encounter the poor and needy, I have found it helpful to ask a few, internal questions like, “I wonder what this person’s childhood was like?” Questions like these helps me grow in empathy and compassion.

Both distribute regular updates and newsletters. You will find information about the Anglican Church in North America here - information about the Diocese of the MidAtlantic here .
 
Ministry Update   Sojourners is the name given to the ministry we began in 2016 as we intentionally opened our doors to Michel. Like so many, Michel had fled the violence of his own home and found a new home with us. Due to the exciting and likely possibility that Michel will soon be reunited with his family of four, we have not yet expanded this ministry. Our goal is to first provide for this dear family and then prayerfully consider expanding this ministry to others. For more information, please contact the coordinator for this ministry, Jack Rusenko at jack@rusenko.com .
