Together in Faith: Jesus answered the devil, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone.’” Luke 4:4
Jesus’ compassion for the poor and oppressed of his time is well documented in the Gospels. It’s true, one doesn’t live by bread alone, but if you’re hungry, bread tastes pretty good! Lent is a perfect time for us to share our ‘bread’ with those who are hungry.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Maureen Davies.
