Last Sunday I received the Micah 6 award from First Congregational Church in Colorado Springs. The award is given each year to persons in the community for their leadership in social justice issues. Micah 6 is the reference to the prophet's injunction to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with the Lord.” I received the award on behalf of the many folks in the area who, over the past several years, have sent buses of humanitarian aid and caravanistas to Cuba (5 buses to date).

We are raising money to purchase another bus for the Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan this year. As many of you know, the Caravan travels without the required license to protest the unjust economic blockade the US has imposed on Cuba for the past fifty years.

 You are invited to a potluck supper at Vista Grande (5460 North Union Blvd) at 5:30 pm, July 7. We will hear from Pastors for Peace caravanistas and bless this year's bus for it's journey to Cuba. Our last bus is now in use by the Juan Diaz Orthopedic Hospital in Havana.

Email me at fromtheporch@comcast.net for more information and to find out how you can help.
