Written by Rev. John R. Sabatelli, InFaith Board Member
As with all people of goodwill, the InFaith Community Foundation family is deeply saddened by recent events in Baton Rouge, Falcon Heights, Minnesota, and Dallas. The violent loss of life cries out for justice. As people of faith, we with the prophet Micah, know what is required, that we "do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God."
You, our donors, through your generous gifts supporting so many life affirming charities, do just that. You work for the healing of the world. But we also know that as long as this world exists sometimes sin and evil get the upper hand despite our best efforts. Yet we do not give up, nor give in to the evil. We continue to put our trust in the God who entered the human story in Jesus, suffered, died and rose again, conquering our last and greatest enemy, death itself.
With gratitude for your partnership,
Chris Andersen Suzanne Hazard
President & Executive Director Chair of the Board
Random Acts of Kindness Fund
Inspired by an unrestricted gift by InFaith Community Foundation donors, the Random Acts of Kindness Fund is intended to respond to needs as they arise outside of InFaith strategic programs.
In response to the recent violence across the country, grants are being awarded to St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Longwood, Florida, to help families affected by the Orlando shooting, and J.J. Hill Montessori Magnet School in St. Paul, to help heal the school community following the death of Philando Castile.
