Make some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for hungry people near you and hand them out. You can learn more about the project here.  We encourage you to use #LutheranPBJ on your social network posts.
 The Psalms tell us that God knit us in our mother's womb.  With the same love and care, Lutherans around the country will knit, crochet and weave blankets and prayer cloths, scarves and shawls for others.  We encourage you to use #LutheransKnit on your social network posts.

You can participate in this project while you knit or give the speakers your full attention.  This is an opportunity to ask questions in a small group and to learn more about justice issues and Synodical projects.  Confirmed participants: The San Francisco Night Ministry, Lutheran Social Services, Reconciling Works
