HOUSE NEWS: Newsletter online, we need blankets, great Roundtable this week, and more!

Dear friends,

(For a complete listing of what is happening this week at the GCW, click here. Read on for house news and other ways you can help.)

Our latest newsletter is now online: gcw-newsletter-october-08. We hope folks will check it out, with info on this year’s Metanoia participants, a scripture reflection, house news and more. Also, please see this important insert which went into all of our newsletters as well: october-2008-insert. We rely totally on the work of our own hands and your generosity. Please consider helping if you can.

With this cold snap, we are out of blankets. And we desperately need them! More people are coming to our door looking for a blanket but also we’re allowing people to sleep on the floor in our home during the coldest nights and we need extra blankets for them too. If you can send any old blankets our way, we would greatly appreciate it. You can drop them off after 12pm any day except Friday.

Also this week at the Roundtable, our very own Patrick Cashio will be leading a provocative and challenging discussion based on Rev. Jon Sobrino, SJ’s latest book “No Salvation Outside the Poor: Prophetic-Utopian Essays”. Sobrino’s fellow Jesuits at the University of Central America in El Salvador were executed by a government-sponsored death squad in 1989 for their teachings on justice and solidarity with the oppressed poor of El Salvador. Sobrino, a liberation theologian, is one of the most influential theologians of our time. Pax Christi USA recently recognized this book with its 2008 Book Award; Patrick reviewed the book for The Catholic Peace Voice. We’ve been a little short on people bringing items for this potluck, so please bring a dish to share if you can!

In peace,

All of us at the GCW
