ONE Sabbath is back for 2009 and we’re kicking off this new season of faith and anti-poverty activism with a very special conference call that we want you to be on. Next Wednesday, September 16 at 7:00pm EST, I’ll be hosting a call to talk about how you can organize your faith community to raise awareness and take action against global poverty through ONE Sabbath and its companion ONE Sadaqa and ONE Seva programs.
And it couldn’t be easier to get on this call. That’s because there’s no dial-in number to remember. All you have to do is sign up by clicking on the link below and our conference call system will automatically call you at 7:00pm on Wednesday. Sign up here.
In addition to myself and other members of the ONE faith relations team, we’ll be joined by a diverse group of religious leaders who are also active in the struggle to end global poverty and preventable disease. From the Christian community, Princess Kasune Zulu will be on the call – she is a noted AIDS activist, Zambia native and associate pastor at River City Church in Chicago. We’ll also have Director of Tikkum Olam for the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation, Rabbi Shawn Zevit; the Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America, Imam Mohamed Hag Magid; and Ishani Chowdhury, the Hindu American Foundation Director of Public Policy.
We’ve got some exciting resources and special materials we’d like to offer you free of charge made by experts in the fields of preaching, small group and youth group curricula. So be sure to register for the call – and don’t worry about calling us, we’ll call you!
