National Farm Worker Ministry
The National Farm Worker Ministry began working with the
Coalition of Immokalee Workers

in response to a request for support during their month-long
hunger strike in 1998.

Since that time, NFWM has been active in the
Fair Food Program's campaigns to bring giant fast food corporations, supermarkets and the tomato industry to act as responsible corporations throughout their supply chains.

“So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also

an heir, through God.”                                                                                  – Galatians 4:7 (NRSV)

                I’ve observed that one of the most difficult impediments to wellness is in setting aside the bad things we think we “deserve.” If we think that we deserve to be mistreated or to mistreat. That we deserve to stay under the fist or boot of an abuser or to hold that fist or to stomp that boot.

                If we believe that our place is on the floor to be someone’s doormat or to walk across someone’s back? Then: right there on the floor is where we will stay. Or we will put—and try to keep—someone down.

                Getting up is so hard.  But I want you to know this: God doesn’t want anyone on that floor. God did not form you in the womb, breathe life into your lungs, walk you into life, bless you at every turn, grant you every good thing you’ve had and done for you to be on the floor or to put someone there.

                If you find yourself in the position of a doormat? Someone did that. But it wasn’t God.  You, Child of God, are heir to God’s promises. You are heir to heaven on earth!  There is no such thing as a Doormat Ministry.             - Kaji Douša

 

Global Ministries Prayers for Costa Rica:  We thank you for the country of Costa Rica, which has provided a home for our university and welcomed students from throughout Latin America and beyond. We give thanks for the strong environmental laws here. May government authorities take the necessary actions to protect biodiversity, and may other regional governments follow.
         We offer our special prayers for communities experiencing the impacts of climate change in ever-stronger hurricanes or ongoing drought. May their cries for climate justice be heard in those places where decisions are made, and may resources be made available to build communities able to adapt and thrive. These things we pray in the name of the Resurrected One as we hope for the renewal of God’s creation.  Amen.
