Bee the change!

Dear friends,            Go to our Missoula Gives page
Harriet Tubman said, you “gotta look past everything you know and believe in something better.” That’s what we do at JRPC. For 33 years, we’ve been keeping the idea of peace alive because we know that war is not the answer. It drains our BeeTheChangeeconomies, pollutes our planet, and destroys lives. If war is not the answer, what is? We believe it is connection, conversation and education — plus a little decency and diplomacy in the way we interact with each other. So one of the other things we work hard at is building a society and a world where those values are the ones we hold in relation to each other. You are likely hearing from many nonprofits in our community asking you to contribute to Missoula Gives today and tomorrow. We all work because of you our community! And if you care about our work, if you need what we offer the world, you need to fund that care with dollars. All it takes is $10 and you can support us or a variety of other deserving groups working in our community. Deepest gratitude for your help and support..Betsy

P.S. Did you notice the peace sign on our bee? It’s a little different than the other bees around town and we hope it helps you step up to look past everything you know, believe that a better world is possible and “Bee the change” for peace. Go to our Missoula Gives page between now and 8 pm tomorrow to show us you care. I

PSS: We have to correct a mistake we make last week — The group that was nominated for the Fr Jim Hogan Search For Peace Award was the University Congregational United Church of Christ Missoula Youth Group — good luck to them and thanks for their great work!
