Al Spillman receives the highest award from Church World Service for his commitment to hunger issues and programs.

On Sunday, May 31, at St. John East United Church of Christ, Al Spillman was presented with the Vanguard Award. John Dolon, former Regional Coordinator for Church World Service, could not be there for the presentation, so the Rev. Phil Hoy presented the award.

Bethlehem, House of Bread - Advent Prayer

Bethlehem, House of Bread

Thank you,
Scandalous God,
For giving yourself to the world,
Not in the powerful and extraordinary,
But in weakness and the familiar:
In a baby; in bread and wine.

Thank you
For offering, at journey’s end, a new beginning;
For setting, in the poverty of a stable,
The richest jewel of your love;
For revealing, in a particular place,
Your light for all nations.

Thank you
For bringing us to Bethlehem, House of Bread,
Where the empty are filled,
And the filled are emptied;
Where the poor find riches,
And the rich recognize their poverty;
Where all who kneel and hold out their hands
Are unstintingly fed.
