November 7, 2014 – Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 United Thank Offering grants.  The new application forms are available here. The United Thank Offering is seeking to address the current culture of violence by supporting the mission of peace as expressed in the Gospel. The focus for the 2015 United Thank Offering grants is Mark Four of the Anglican Marks of Mission: To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation.
