HARVEY RELIEF BEGINS

Anglican Church Logo

 Support the Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort

Hurricane Harvey has already displaced thousands in south Texas and Louisiana, and the rains and flooding are expected to continue throughout the week to come.  Meteorologists are warning that while the winds have now died down, the greater danger could come from the continual rain that the region will receive.

Bishop Clark Lowenfield and The Anglican Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast are based in Houston, Texas and will be coordinating the relief effort among Anglicans in the region.  Bishop Lowenfield, who was forced to evacuate his home yesterday, said, “Thank you to all those who have been offering their prayers and expressing their concern to us. The impact of Harvey is already evident, and we are being told to expect days more of rain and ‘catastrophic flooding’. In the Houston area in particular, the devastation will take months if not years of recovery. Your gift to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund will mean that individuals in some of the most hard-hit areas will be able to put their lives back together once this is all over. Above all, I implore you to pray with us in this storm. As Psalm 29:10-11 tells us, ‘The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!'”

Archbishop Beach is calling the Church to pray, give, and prepare: “Now is an important time for the Church to step forward. First and foremost, please join me in praying for the people of south Texas and Louisiana. Please pray for all those in distress, those who are being called to extraordinary acts of courage, and those who are obediently engaging in small acts of faithfulness.
Second, please consider giving so that Christians in the area will have the resources they need to show their communities the love of Christ in tangible ways.  We cannot anticipate today all that will need to be done in the days ahead, but we are blessed to have churches in the region who can be the hands and feet of Christ.
Third, whether you are in Texas, Louisiana, or in the states surrounding the region, please be preparing to serve.  As the Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast prioritizes the needs, you will be hearing more about how you and your congregation can serve through volunteer work teams.”

FEBRUARY 19-WORLD MISSION SUNDAY

ardf-mission-logoFebruary 19th is World Mission Sunday! Every year this Sunday is an opportunity to both celebrate and encourage one another in our efforts to proclaim the Gospel in both word and deed.

 “In that day you will say: ‘Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.’” Isaiah 12:4

Through ARDF and our partners, much work IS taking place around the globe. However, there is much more to be done to participate in God’s global and great commission.

The Anglican Church in North America and Anglican Global Mission Partners have teamed up to provide you with helpful resources to make this special day spiritually challenging, prayerfully engaging, and practically motivating. You can check out these resources at www.newwineskins.org.

If you are active in your church, we’d love to challenge you to do something different this year. Plan a mission training day, organize a lunch or dinner event, invite a guest speaker, or host a special Sunday School class focused on world mission and play the “God’s Passion for the World” video. There is even a study guide you can download. Why not highlight the global projects and partners that your congregation supports, and take up a special offering on their behalf? If your church has not yet supported global missions, check out some of ARDF’s newest projects for ideas.

Other resources offered online include a prayer Litany for Mission and special excerpts from the Kenyan Eucharistic Liturgy. If you have never read through this liturgy, you must!

CALL OUT FOR RELIEF FUNDS FOR VICTIMS OF HURRICANE MATTHEW

Relief Appeal: Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew is advancing up the Eastern seaboard of the United States after wreaking havoc in Haiti, Cuba, and other nations in the Caribbean.

As CNN reports, “Haiti had only just begun rebuilding from a devastating earthquake six years ago when Hurricane Matthew tore through the small Caribbean nation on Tuesday, killing hundreds in its path and inundating entire villages.”

In response to the devastation in Haiti and Cuba, and in anticipation of the Anglican parishes which will be affected as Matthew moves up the coast, ARDF has created a fund to help victims. The funds will be distributed by need as determined by ACNA Bishops in jurisdictions affected by the storm in the USA and Cuba. After the Haiti earthquake, for instance, ARDF assisted church communities through an Anglican-affiliated clean water mission.

Contributions to this hurricane relief effort will go to the Anglican diocese best positioned to coordinate the emergency relief. Should an Anglican diocese not be present, ARDF will work through one of our trusted partners to ensure that funds get to the local church.
