ELCA World Hunger staff and associates write about root causes of hunger, current events, and anything else they find pertinent.
We are marching, we are marching, Alleluia! We are marching in the light of God!
This has been my prayer song today, in this place that I am with thousands of women…from every corner of every land.
We are mothers, we are daughters, we are sisters, aunts, grandmothers, and friends. We lead…by example, through our actions, through our words, our work, and our service. We are led…by our faith, by our passion, by each other.
To shine God’s light…in places of darkness, in places of struggle, indifference, and idleness. To countries throughout Africa, where women and girls are gaining access to education, healthcare, and business… To Brazil, where women by the thousands stand up for land rights and food sovereignty… To the Australian outback and reservation lands throughout the United States, where indigenous women call out to end oppression and discrimination…
We stand with one another.
We are marching…we are praying…we are singing in the light of God, and my heart cries for joy for the greatness in the world! Alleluia!!
