Letters: Forgive Us Our Debts
I was challenged and inspired by Virginia Gilbert’s “Forgive Us Our Debts” (April 2015). My congregation, Columbus Mennonite Church, recently had a Sunday focus on debt forgiveness—in scripture and in our present reality. I invited the congregation to give toward a Jubilee Fund that would be distributed to those among us carrying burdensome debt, challenging our congregation of about 150 people to raise $10,000 in two weeks. We raised $25,285 and have mailed checks of $903.03 to 28 members, mostly young adults.
