Stone church gifts books

Stone Church of the Brethren in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, presented children’s books to Huntingdon County Library and the Mount Union Community Library recently as part of the “It’s a Small World Book Project,” according to the Huntingdon Daily News and WTAJ

The presentation was part of an initiative to introduce books about race in an effort to heal racism, funded by the Healing Racism mini-grant program of the Church of the Brethren’s Intercultural Ministries.
