"Love is recession proof EMO 2008 Financial Report - PDF"
ECUMENICAL M INISTRIES of O REGON 2008 annual report Love is recession proof The year 2008 will be remembered as the time when many of our economic systems were turned upside down. Even in the best of times, many people live on the economic margins, uncertain of the future of their employment or whether there is enough money in the household for food AND health insurance. Last year, this uncertainty greatly increased, and no sector of society was immune. White collar professionals lost their jobs, some employers stopped Board Members making contributions to retirement funds and community organizations cut back on their health care beneﬁts. Whole communities were thrown into crisis, leaving all too many people uncertain as to their future. The Rev. Dr. Lowell Greathouse And yet as stock portfolios, bank accounts and house values grew smaller, there seemed to be an increase in the President outpouring of love and concern for one’s neighbor. At Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO), as the number of people served through our community ministry programs increased, so did the number of donors and volunteers who The Rev. Lynne Smouse López responded generously to meet this enlarged need. While there were some congregations who experienced a decrease in President-Elect their members’ giving, many saw their members give more, knowing how important the religious community is during James Buck unsettling times. Through active ministry, these faith communities provided critical support in the forms of emergency Immediate Past President food, rental assistance and shelter during winter storms, as well as critical spiritual care and support. Our mission at Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon is to bring together Oregon’s faith community “in service to Trudy Bradley God’s people and creation.” Only together are we able to create transformative and working associations that deepen Treasurer relationships among faith communities, allowing for effective collaborative ministry and service to address some of Oregon’s most challenging problems. The Rev. Dr. Marilyn Sewell In the face of today’s recession, EMO takes seriously God’s promise found in the Psalms that “the needy shall not be Secretary forgotten nor the hope of the poor perish forever.” We are profoundly grateful for all the ways that congregations and religious communities throughout Oregon make this ancient promise come alive in very contemporary and relevant life changing ways. And we are grateful for all the donors and volunteers who support EMO’s community ministry Bruce A. Bishop The Rev. Alcena Boozer programs, theological dialogue and education opportunities, environmental and public policy advocacy, and prayer and The Rev. Dr. Lorne Bostwick worship activities—all of which connect people and communities of faith to work together to improve the lives of all The Rev. Dr. Mark Brocker Oregonians. Our Web site (www.emoregon.org) is a good place to connect to EMO, as well as to a number of other Lisa DeVaney events and activities throughout Oregon. The Rev. Dr. LeRoy Haynes, Jr. As this report details, we are blessed to be able to gather and support such a broad group of members and The Rev. J.W. Matt Hennessee collaborators to work together in the spirit of a common mission. We invite you to join with Ecumenical Ministries of Robina Ingram-Rich Oregon in this ministry of love and hope in service to God’s people and creation in this part of the Paciﬁc Northwest. The Rev.
