How are you being fed today? Who or what is nourishing you? And who and what are you feeding?
We are fed by the witness and work of women throughout the world who face the harshest challenges with creativity and hope. We were fed by our mothers, who offered their whole selves us for our wellbeing (scroll down for a way to give back).
We are in even deeper prayer for our partner projects. We pray for the women in the Wabash County Jail and their families, and the transformational work of Growing Grounds in Indiana.
We pray for the vulnerable women, children and all migrant workers, people impacted by the caste system, those without access to running water, and the redemptive work of Cultural Academy for Peace in India.
We pray for those people without access to health care, without citizenship documentation, without communication from loved ones who have relocated to support their families, and the healing work of Integrated Health Collective in Chiapas.
We pray for the children who cannot attend school, who are in dangerous, ill-resourced, or anxious households. We pray for the girls of Uganda and all places in the world who are at greater risk of rape, female genital mutilation and sex trafficking without school, and we pray for the world-building work of Sister Stella and Shifting Ideas through Education for African Women.
We pray for service workers – who are usually women – whose employment was already risky and underpaid, who now join the impossibly long lines for food pantries and unemployment insurance.
Like you, we are fed by feeding others. We are nourished by caring for others. We encourage you to practice self-care through compassion to others. Jesus taught us that we must love our neighbor as ourselves – and we do both at the same time.
Put tangible love in your mother’s hands (and other people you care about)! Send a donation to Global Women’s Project with a list of the people you want to honor this Mother’s Day and we will send them a handwritten card to tell them that they inspire you to support women and their communities throughout the world. This is a good time to get postal mail – scroll down for instructions.
Are you getting a stimulus check? If you don’t need it for immediate needs in your family, do you plan to share it with neighbors and non-profits? Tell us how you are called to give: how you are fed and feeding in this seasons.
