Are you a baseball fan? How about a supporter of Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD)? Either way, have we got a deal for you!
Bishop Jeff Lee of the Diocese of Chicago and Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of the Diocese of Ohio have a bet on the World Series, but it has nothing to do with what happens on the field.
Lee thinks the number of generous Chicago Cubs fans is greater than the number of generous Cleveland Indians fans, and he has a pound of Chicago-style hot dogs that says so.
Hollingsworth and a pound of comb honey collected from the hive at Bellwether Farm, the diocesan camp and retreat center, say Lee is wrong.
The prize goes to the bishop who rallies the greatest number of supporters. But whichever bishop is right, Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners around the world will be the real winners. So place your support now…
Make your donation to Episcopal Relief & Development HERE if you support the team that hasn’t won the World Series since Harry Truman was in the White House (that’s the Indians or Team Hollingsworth).
Or, HERE if you support the team that hasn’t won since Moses was playing T-ball (that would be the Cubs or Team Lee).
Whomever you support, both bishops and ERD thank you!
Our Fifth Sunday Child-friendly Eucharist is this Sunday, October 30th. Given the date, you might expect that the theme will be All Hallows Eve. And we’re inviting the children (and adults, if you wish!) to come in costumes. Bring your little ones to hear more about how Halloween fits with the church.
