“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.”
(Acts 2:4)

"Today’s festival derives its name from the Jewish festival of Pentecost, observed fifty days after Passover. On the fiftieth day of Easter we celebrate the Holy Spirit as the power of God among us that heals, forgives, inspires, and unites. In the reading from Acts, images of wind and fire describe the Spirit poured out on disciples of all nations. In John’s gospel the risen Christ breathes the Spirit on his followers on Easter evening. In the one Spirit we are baptized into one body, and at the Lord’s table the Spirit unites us for witness in the world."

ELCIC NEWS RELEASE:
"ELCIC Members Encouraged To Support Stop Famine Together Appeal

More than 20 million people in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and Nigeria are facing a food crisis and in need of urgent humanitarian aid. In addition, the countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Niger, Chad and Cameroon, are facing their own hunger crises or are feeling the effects from their neighbours.

...

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), through its partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), calls on its members to respond through prayer and financial support to help meet the needs of drought-affected people through the promotion of climate resilient food production.
In Ethiopia, CLWR is supporting small-scale farmers and pastoralists by constructing irrigation systems to improve food production. CLWR is developing a project in Uganda to meet the food and nutrition needs of South Sudanese refugees who are experiencing malnutrition.
Today, the Government of Canada announced that for every eligible donation made by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities between March 17 and June 30, 2017, it will contribute an equivalent amount to the Famine Relief Fund.
The Humanitarian Coalition, a national coalition comprised of seven agencies that are responding to the food crisis—of which CLWR is a member—has launched a joint fundraising campaign: “Stop Famine Together.” We invite your support for our response to the food crisis.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the food crisis,” says Rev. Susan C. Johnson, ELCIC National Bishop. “I have visited some of these regions and have seen first hand the devastating effects of the lack of rain, land erosion, and the scarcity of proper irrigation systems. It is important that we assist our sisters and brothers by responding generously to this appeal.” "
