Presiding Bishop encourages support for Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on March 1

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, encourages congregations and supporters to support the ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE campaign through observance of Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on March 1, 2020.  
"Lent is a time of reflection and of following Jesus, demonstrating his love for the world," said Presiding Bishop Curry. "I invite all congregations to devote a Sunday in Lent to reflect on the transformational work of Episcopal Relief & Development, particularly their work with children, and to tangibly demonstrate God's love by giving generously to support ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE."   
Episcopal Relief & Development's 2020 Lenten Meditations focus on the spiritual lives of children and how they can inform the prayers and meditations of all Christians. These booklets and other resources including hope chests, pew envelopes, bulletin inserts and special prayers are available at Supporters are encouraged to sign up for daily email meditations in English and Spanish, and, new this year, meditations as podcasts on Apple Podcasts, Sound Cloud and Google Play.  
To have printed copies of the Lenten Meditations in English or Spanish by Ash Wednesday, February 26, Forward Movement must receive orders by Friday, February 7.
