On Aug. 24, Bread will join local and national events honoring enslaved African peoples who arrived from Angola to the shores of Jamestown, Virginia. To commemorate this occasion, Bread for the World is featuring its Pan African devotional guide. In addition, Bread’s Pan African Young Adult Network (PAYAN), will embark on a pilgrimage to Jamestown on this anniversary weekend.
Bread recognizes the lament associated with this commemoration and the hope of African peoples inspired and led by a spiritual resistance to injustice that informs their mission to end hunger and poverty.
This message of lament and hope is echoed throughout the commemorative, "2019 Quad-Centennial Pan African Devotional,” drawing from Lamentations 3:19-23:
“I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.”
We invite you to deepen your advocacy with those who are affected by hunger and poverty by receiving, using, and sharing on social media the gift of this commemorative monthly devotional.
May this be a powerful resource for our continued prayers and acts of advocacy together.
Rev. Dr. Angelique Walker-Smith is senior associate for Pan-African and Orthodox Church engagement at Bread for the World.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.

Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition in the fiscal year 2020 budget.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
