When he spoke in Holland last month, Bread for the World President David Beckmann said that religiously-rooted Western Michigan might just be the epicenter of a national movement on hunger.
Join us, then, as we and CROP present:
WHAT: Showing of the video "The Line"
WHERE: Western Theological Seminary
Library, 6th floor
WHEN: Thursday, 11 October, 7 pm
The first half hour of our time will be used to distribute CROP checks. We'll run the video at about 7:30 pm. Refreshments will be provided! We hope to see you there.
Written and directed by Emmy award-winning producer Linda Midgett, The Line chronicles the very real stories of four real people struggling with real poverty in America today. We'll meet a former banker in the suburban Midwest who used to earn six figures a year and now, after the economic collapse, must go to a food bank to feed his three kids; a fisherman on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana who has watched his livelihood and his culture wash away in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the devastating BP oil spill; a blue collar guy in North Carolina who worked hard his whole life but lost his job, became homeless, and started over as a restaurant bus boy; and a single mom in Chicago who battles daily to ensure that her son is safe, healthy, and has the opportunity to go to college.
Updates, meeting minutes, and other stuff that's good to know.
