Brothers and Sisters,

You are receiving this communication because you have signed up in the past to receive one of our many informative newsletters around the work of hunger, poverty alleviation, food rights, climate change, peacemaking, human rights and more.

In the past year, we have reached out to many of you who have indicated that while you want to keep up with what is happening within the Presbyterian Mission Agency, you may be hearing too often from us. We want you to know we hear you. Moving forward, the ministries of Compassion, Peace and Justice will be providing only two monthly e-newsletters.

Presbyterian Justice and Peace Monthly, the newsletter you are receiving todaycaptures the great work the church is doing across a variety of programs and ministries. This informative piece will provide a monthly snapshot of the issues our ministry is involved with and give you an opportunity to learn more about our church and suggest ways that you can get involved.

Presbyterian Justice and Peace Close-up,
which will arrive in a few weeks, is our second monthly newsletter that will focus on one issue or program and describe more fully the many ways the church is bearing witness to Christ in a broken and hurting world.

We hope you find this new approach useful and informative as you serve your church and community. Please let us know what you think.

Faithfully in Christ,

Sara Pottschmidt Lisherness
Director, Compassion, Peace and Justice Ministry
