If most of us were truly honest with ourselves and each other we would have to admit that we truly live in abundance. To prevent further erosion of the work we do as the national expression of our church it is time to pass some of that abundance along. I just did a quick calculation, if I give up only one of my two daily indulgences of direct trade americano coffees, I will save $260.00 to pass along to the ELCIC praise appeal at the Synod convention in July. There are 1000 baptized members in the congregation here at Zion,and 78,000 in the Eastern Synod. You do the math! Wow that didn’t even hurt!
