HAITI “TRIP OF TRANSFORMATION” FUNDRAISING LUNCH – APRIL 15 12:00 pm
HAITI “TRIP OF TRANSFORMATION” FUNDRAISING LUNCH – APRIL 15
Apr 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
For many years, Ginter Park Presbyterian Church has supported pilgrimages for our high school youth. Our young (and not-so-young) adults speak compellingly about ways those experiences – far from home – opened their eyes to the lives and perspectives of others, to the complex issues confronted by communities around the world, and to God’s Spirit, present in surprising ways.   This summer our Senior High Sunday School class (Anita and Miriam Brown, Nathan Carswell, Elijah Keyes, Michael Nijimbere, and Christopher Walker, with Evan Booth and Carla Pratt Keyes, their teachers) are preparing for a trip to Haiti. They’ll visit communities of Christians on La Gonâve, an island near Port-au-Prince. The vision for this trip emerged from experiences and conversations the group has shared (about welcoming the stranger (particularly the foreigner), poverty and wealth, the importance of stewarding creation, and what it means to be Christ’s Church), and in light of commitments GPPC already has (to Presbytery of the James ministries in Haiti, to PCUSA Mission Co-worker Cindy Corell, and, through GPPC member Leslie Jordanger, to La Gonâve Haiti Partners). We hope this will be a trip of transformation – an opportunity to find “the way” of God for us, apart from “the track” laid down by the dominant value system here in the United States.   We hope you’ll consider supporting this experience. We invite you to a lunch after worship on Sunday, April 15 – to enjoy some delicious lasagna (!), to hear about our hopes for the trip and ways to pray for us, and to consider offering financial support.
