Art Workshop Feeding 5000
Our Feeding 5000 Art Workshop encourages your classes to create art together, depicting fish in banners or mobiles that can be displayed in your church or homes of congregants.
SCRIPTURE John 6:1-14
Feeding 5,000 takes on a global view in the guiding principle of Passing on the Gift®. It is the first of Heifer’s 12 Cornerstones for Just and Sustainable Development and highlights the importance of sharing our gifts with others. Heifer works with communities to provide the means for people to support themselves. A family is expected to pass on its gift by sharing one or more of its animal’s offspring—along with knowledge, resources and skills—with a neighbor in hopes of improving the health of the entire community. Families pass on the gift to another, then to another, until every family in the community is self-reliant. Then, the community passes on the gift to other communities and reaches a global impact of ending hunger and poverty.
• Jesus performed a miracle when he fed 5,000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish
• Heifer helps to feed thousands throughout the world by supplying them with the means to produce their own food
• Passing on the Gift occurs when one family passes on one or more of its animal’s offspring to another family
