IAP 2005 Activity

Serving "The Least of These"
Amy McCreath
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

Jesus commends serving the "least of these" as central to a life of faith. Who are "the least of these" in our society? What are the issues facing the neediest of the needy? What is it like to work with them, and what are some first steps for those who want to do so? This four-part discussion will focus on four subsets of "the least of these" and be led by people who work with each.
