Al Ahli Hospital Update - According to the Nov. 14 PBS Evening News report, the Al Ahli Hospital, supported by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, was the only functioning hospital in Gaza City. Pray for all doctors, nurses, and patients in Gaza, those who seek to provide healing and those who seek healing.
What Can I Do to Help in the Holy Land? - Let us pray for all who are suffering. Let us contact the offices of our Senator and Representative to express our opinions. Let us continue to pray for the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and Archbishop Hosam. As we are able, let us continue our financial support by going on the AFEDJ website and clicking the DONATE button for directions. Each of us can decide whether to designate our contribution for "Where Most Needed" or "The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre." Let us go online to learn more about the ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, which are open to all people. You are also invited to get in touch with Lynn and Greg Wood for more information.
The Globe - As we move into Thanksgiving, let us feed the Globe generously during the next few weeks in preparation for our final 2023 distribution by mid-December. Checks should be written to Good Shepherd Episcopal Church with the word GLOBE on the memo line. Our distribution is divided equally among the following organizations: Shepherd's Table, MUSST (Ministries United Silver Spring Takoma Park), Asylum Works (with a designation for PRISM, which serves LGBTQ+ asylum seekers), and ERD (Episcopal Relief and Development). You are encouraged to explore each of these groups online and/or by talking with Shaun Hardy or Lynn Wood.
Shepherd’s Table is asking Good Shepherd for volunteers. Please follow these links for opportunities to volunteer or reach out to Daniella Burgos at email@example.com. Thank you!
