Today is Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a day that encourages people to do good, an alternative to the materialism of holiday shopping.  Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This Giving Tuesday, we at the National Council of Churches encourage you to think about all the things you care about and how you can best give of yourself to see that they thrive.

In this time of deep division...

It has been often noted that the churches are some of the only places today where people come together, no matter what else might keep them apart.  Sure, there's plenty of controversy everywhere, but when it comes down to it, we still worship, pray, learn, and work together in spite of our differences.

The National Council of Churches has been working for unity for seventy years.

Seventy years ago this year the National Council of Churches was founded in order to bring diverse denominations together: to worship together, learn from each other, and work together in common witness.  Through our Faith and Order work we build understanding and community.  Through our Action and Advocacy we work for a just society.  And through our Christian Education work we engage hearts and minds for the challenges that lie ahead.

In this age of division and mistrust, we are serving with the Spirit of Christ, putting the words, "Blessed are the peacemakers..." to work.
