The McKendree United Methodist Women held their March meeting on Thur., March 21, at 11 a.m. at Columbia Cottage Assisted Living in Hartselle. Member Jean Lawrence, who lives at Columbia Cottage, was hostess for the meeting.

Carolyn Besnyl presented a continuation of the unit’s study on “World Poverty” and she asked the following questions on how we relate to poverty:

• What does it mean to be poor?

• What are the five most used words to describe the poor?

• What does “working poor” mean?

• Have you ever been poor?

It is predicted that the U.S. poverty level will remain at the peak of 15 to 16 percent until 2014. The cash income poverty levels in the U.S. are $22,214 for a family of four and $11,139 for an individual.

According to the social principles of the United Methodist Church, “Poverty most often has systemic causes and therefore we do not hold poor people morally responsible for their economic state.”

Tammy Vest led the prayer for those on the prayer request list and blessed the food. Everyone attending enjoyed lunch served by the cottage staff.

Afterwards, they enjoyed visiting with the other residents there. Seeing former interim pastor’s wife Aline Barnes was a special treat. The next meeting will be held on Thur., April 18, at 1:30 p.m., when members will discuss making sizable donations this spring.
