Some colleagues asked me to share information about "Change the World" weekend in the United Methodist Church. "CTW weekend is May 19-20, and the goal is to get church members outside of church walls to come together and make a difference across the world, whether in their local communities at a soup kitchen or some service event, or by raising funds to fight death from malaria in Africa.
"The goal is to show United Methodists that we can come together to make a difference and that serving God goes beyond the church walls and should be a part of everyday life."
