Works Sunday was recently featured on "Reston's African American Legacy" program on Reston's cable channel 28. The show, which is hosted by Rev. LaVerne Gill - (perhaps not coincidentally, the founder of Works Sunday!) - featured Steering Committee members Debbie Aschenbach of United Christian Parish, Li-Ping Hwang of the Buddhist Tzu-Chi Foundation, and Chris Wist of St. Thomas à Becket Catholic Church. The Works Sunday segment begins at 3' 46". To view, just click on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNsFWPMRnOo.
Works Sunday is an annual service event in Northern Virginia that takes place on or about the third Sunday in August, focusing on activities in the Reston, Herndon and Sterling communities. Each year since 1995, people of many faiths - Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims and others - have worked side-by-side to celebrate the values that unite us, while addressing important social issues like hunger, homelessness, and the special needs of those less fortunate. As we work towards building a more compassionate community, we get to know one another as brothers and sisters.
