Here is a gem of information from my counterparts in Texas. They did a great job creating a central hub for info and it is worth sharing. The MDG's are very important to this Diocese and it is nice to see work being done in other Dioceses as well.
July 8th has been designated Millennium Development Goals Sunday in the Episcopal Church celebrating the mid-point of the UN's MDG goal to reduce extreme poverty in the world by 2015.
Materials to celebrate a special Millennium Development Goals Sunday include a complete worship service with sermon and prayers of the people, bulletin inserts and background information. Curriculum for children and youth are also included with PowerPoint presentations of MDGs and another with an MDG atlas from the World Bank. God's Mission in the World, a study guide provided by the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations was used for adult curriculum.
These materials are available for your use on July 8 or at any other time. They were prepared by the Diocese of Texas and are available at:
