Union Gospel Mission Vows To Find A Way To Serve Annual Easter Dinner

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

We are less than two weeks away from Easter! As many of you know,

For several years the Union Gospel Mission has served a traditional Easter Dinner to the homeless and needy in local communities. With Easter less than two weeks away, the church is determined to be able to continue the tradition.
  
Officials said, "We have been waiting to see how the COVID-19 situation was going to play out before we made solid plans.  We ARE going to be serving our Annual Community Easter Dinner. We are trying to decide HOW we are going to make it work.
  
"If you want to help in some way, please let us know. If you would like to volunteer (and we understand if you don’t), or if you would like to donate or provide food or if you would like to help support this outreach financially, please let us know as soon as possible
  
"We will be having this event in SOME FORM on Easter Sunday."

I do not believe “Black Lives Matter.” Rather, I believe “All Lives Matter.” And using the latter over the former, I am mad too. The rioting that is taking place all over America is against the law. It restricts my freedoms, bridles my trusts, is contrary to my beliefs, and – if it still matters – is blatantly unconstitutional. That the President of the United States has no choice ...
