Zaccheus Was a Tax Man

Bread for the World encourages congregations to observe Sunday,
April 11, or Wednesday, April 14, as "Tax Day:" a to think and
pray about the role of taxes and tax credits. Bread has created free
to help mark the day — including worship material, prayers,
theological reflections, and bulletin inserts. 

Among those resources is "Zaccheus Was a Tax Man," a new hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette.

Bread for the World's Offering of Letters for 2010 urges Congress to adopt changes to U.S. tax policy that will benefit low-income families. 

Larry Hollar of Bread for the World provides a reflection on how Jesus encounters and transforms Zaccheus to explore how paying taxes can contribute to a better, more just society.

Check out the resources and consider holding an Offering of Letters near Tax Day.

Carolyn Winfrey Gillette will be among the leaders at Songs for Peace and Justice at Stony Point Center in October, an event sponsored by the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship, and Stony Point. She is the author of Songs of Grace: New Hymns for God and Neighbor (Upper Room Books 2009)and Gifts of Love: New Hymns for Today's Worship (Geneva Press, 2000).
