Our 2023 Pledge Campaign, More Than Enough, is underway. The feeding of the multitudes appears in three of the four gospels. Our pledge campaign theme, More Than Enough, comes from the end of Luke’s version of this familiar story. The disciples panic when Jesus tells them, “You give them something to eat,” because they cannot see how they can feed all the crowds of Jesus’ followers. But Jesus soothes their fears of “not enough” and transforms the meager five loaves and two fish into More Than Enough with the help of community. Responding to Jesus’ request, the crowd turns pockets inside out, shakes out their blankets, and rummages through their parcels to find enough to take care of the needs of the community. And what do they realize? That by the miracle of faith and the action of love, there is More Than Enough!
A package containing the pledge card and a letter from the All Saints’ vestry was sent out via US mail early last week. If you have not received a package by mail, you can download both the letter and the pledge card by clicking on one of the links below.
We hope you will join us in responding to More Than Enough by making a pledge to All Saints by Sunday, December 4, when we will celebrate together at our ingathering.
And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces. Luke 9:16-17, NRSV
