As we prepare to enter the season of Lent, we want to invite you to join ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.

As the world has reeled from the effects of a deadly pandemic, we have seen the number of hungry people around the world rise, watched as food pantries and soup kitchens expanded to serve an ever-growing number of guests, and longed together for the time when we “will hunger no more, and thirst no more ... and God will wipe away every tear from [our] eyes” (Revelation 7:16-17).

This very yearning is at the heart of who we are as church together. Yet our longing has never led to inertia or despair, despite the discouraging forecasts. We are an Easter people, ever journeying toward the cross but trusting in faith that God’s story does not end on that hill.

At ELCA.org/40Days, you’ll find these downloadable resources to enrich the life of your congregation and family this season: Whether your congregation is meeting virtually or in person, we hope these resources enrich your Lenten season and inspire giving to the critical ministry of ELCA World Hunger, an important part of Christ’s call on our church. Thank you.
