A Super Bowl challenge to do good in the world

A Super Bowl challenge to do good in the world

Here’s a Super Bowl challenge that allows you to do some good in the world while showing your team spirit. Bishop Greg Rickel of the Diocese of Olympia in Western Washington and Bishop Robert O’Neill of the Diocese of Colorado have issued a Super Bowl challenge to football fans.

Namely, they want to see which diocese can give most to Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) BEFORE kickoff on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. Pacific time. To donate, go to to the donate page of ERD Web site, select “Global Needs” and enter the amount you wish to donate. After filling out your address and other information there is an option titled “Would you like to dedicate this donation?” Click “yes, in honor of” and in the box put “Super Bowl Seattle” or “Super Bowl Denver.” ERD will announce which diocese gave the most money after kick-off.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
