Yea!!! My ELCA Good Gifts catalog arrived in the mail. Now I can do my Christmas shopping! Did you get one? If you're not familiar with Good Gifts, here's how it works: If Aunt Sally and Uncle Fred really don't need anything, or if you have a person on your list that is really impossible to buy for, or if you'd just like to honor someone, this is the perfect way. Through ELCA World Hunger, you can supply someone throughout 83 countries with the support they need to thrive.
Imagine you were alone on a major holiday like Christmas, Ramadan, Thanksgiving or Hanukkah. Depressing! This is why during the 2018 Synod Assembly, individuals and congregations collected and assembled items needed to create Christmas satchels. The satchels will bring joy to seafarers who will not be home with their loved ones for any one of the holidays this season.
