Light in the Tunnel: Stories of hope and resilience from Oregon’s faith community
May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
EMO PRESENTS A FREE ONLINE GALA ON MAY 19
It seems like all we hear about is the negative. We too often miss the simple stories of people helping one another, the remarkable stories of Oregonians living their values and serving their neighbors.
This event will inspire and encourage while offering you the opportunity to financially support the ongoing work of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon in direct service programs, advocacy, education and unity-building. We will honor EMO’s “Ecumenists of the Year” Randy and Edith Woodley and learn more about their Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice. We’ll also premier mini documentaries about the warming shelter at Hood River Valley Christian Church, the Black Santa PDX project, and the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s response to the Oregon wildfires.
