Lower Susquehanna Lutherans rocked their Pentecost and Reformation red footwear to  “knock the socks off hunger” at our Synod Assembly this year. Bishop Jim Dunlop challenged synod assembly attendees to “Sock it to Hunger” by wearing red socks on Friday, June 2. Click the photo to learn more.

Red socks showed up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as Lower Susquehanna Synod Lutherans wore red in response to Bishop Dunlop’s challenge to feed others as we have been fed by Christ. Bishop Jim and Connie Dunlop pledged $5 to ABMN Hunger Initiatives for every pair of red socks worn, photographed, and uploaded to social media using the hashtag #LSS17. In addition to Bishop Dunlop’s pledge, the congregations of St. Paul’s (Enola) and Good Shepherd (Paxtang) offered a match of $1 for each pair of socks. Two congregations in Perry Conference, Christ (New Bloomfield) and Messiah (Elliottsburg), wore red socks to worship on May 21, and posted wonderful group photos.

We are grateful for those who wore red socks as a visible sign that our synod is the place where others are fed as we have been fed by Christ. So far this ‘s challenge has resulted in $896 to fight hunger. Thank you!

IT’S NOT TOO LATE! If you weren’t able to participate in this Year’s “Sock it to Hunger” Challenge, you can still make a gift to our Synod’s “LSS Hunger Initiatives #LSS17” and help reduce hunger in central Pennsylvania and beyond.
