HI! Thanks for sending the OGHS materials. The brochures are so well done. I also appreciate your sending the plain white envelopes. For some reason our congregation donates more generously when we use them Carolyn Weeks
in the minute for mission handout on Self-Development of People, the phrase "advocating for disabled people" appears. "People first" language (people with disabilities) reflects not only the understanding that people are people first, not defined by their abilities/disabilities, but also is a profound theological statement that through Christ we are all brothers and sisters, and equal, with agency and purpose, given to us in our baptism.
Why must I wade through all the resources of the Mission division when all I want is a copy of one of the photos in the OGHS Leader's Guide. It is especially difficult when the photos aren't labeled so that I don't know exactly what I'm looking for. We used to be able to download the Leader's Guide section by section, and it worked very nicely.
Somewhere I read that you could text ("OGHS" to 20222 on your mobile phone) to make a donation. How is this done?
You're welcome, Susan! Thanks for letting us know :)
