Faith and Community Health Summit this fall in Atlanta

Whether you have a successful health ministry or community health program or want to start one, this Summit has something for you! 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is hosting a Tri-Regional Faith and Community Health Summit in October 2013. This event will gather thousands of faith and community leaders from 17 states to summit locations in Atlanta(Oct 3-5), Dallas(Oct 24-26), and Kansas City, (Oct 24-26) for one purpose, “Building Healthier Communities through Education, Empowerment, and Engagement.”  

Participants will have the opportunity to develop one-year action plans to improve their personal health, the health of their organizations and communities, and the well-being of future generations. They will also join a network of organizations who will share best practices, successes, and lessons learned.

The Regional Council of Churches of Atlanta and  C.H.I.P., the mental health coalition of which we are a part, are working on this summit and presenting there.

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
