For over 70 years, the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering (OGHS)—known as Week of Compassion (WoC) in the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ— has been helping American and Canadian Christians bring God’s hope and healing to hurting people both in the U.S. and around the world. Since the closing years of World War II, OGHS has raised funds to support domestic and international development, fight poverty and its consequences, and bring aid and relief to communities torn by war or ravaged by natural disaster. OGHS is YOUR reach into the world; working in partnership with people we will never meet, yet to whom we are connected. Your generosity makes all the difference in the world. There is power in doing good and changing the lives of others. We cannot grow weary or quit—lives are at stake. God’s Spirit energizes and re-energizes us when we get tired. God helps us to help others. Food is life. Hunger is the denial of life. Fighting hunger is an affirmation of life. The need has never been greater. Let us continue this good work. Let us stay energized. Let us give generously. The opportunity is now. It’s time to share.
