legacy christmas CD cover, nativity angelOrder Legacy Christmas CDs

The second volume of the Legacy Christmas CD, Nativity Carols and Hymns, is now available for consignment or purchase. This CD features a range of styles, from Celtic-influenced pieces to Appalachian tunes common to churches in the 1700 and 1800s. Positive reviews of the music from the new volume keep coming in. (You can preview songs from both beautiful collections here.)

And remember, proceeds from sales of the CD are split between Presbyterian Women’s Birthday Offering and Living Waters for the World. So your purchase is a win-win-win!  Last year, more than 400 churches supported the Legacy Christmas project, raising net proceeds of $100,000. We hope to surpass that total this year. With two beautiful CDs now available, we can do it—but we need your help!

mother and child nutritionStart a conversation about child and maternal nutrition

The first 1,000 days of a child’s life are a critical window for creating a healthier and more prosperous future. Bread for the World's 1,000 Days movement promotes targeted action and investment to improve nutrition for mothers and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. And you can help.

By educating others (through a conversation or even a minute-for-mission), you can raise awareness around this topic. Download conversation starters to help focus your discussion on child and maternal nutrition. And get suggestions for action and advocacy to improve nutrition for women and children.
