On October 1 we begin October Justice Awareness. I believe that this is going to be a time that will change our lives indefinitely. As we spend the month of October looking at the injustice of extreme global poverty, preventable disease, slavery, human trafficking, gender injustice, etc. we will develop a heart, God’s heart for these issues. We will look at the mother, the father, the son, the daughter, the husband and the wife that are affected each and every day by injusice. During this journey you will not grow callused or hard towards these issues, but more passionate.
We are beginning on Thursday October 1 by looking at the issue of poverty. Approximately 10% of the worlds population are living in extreme poverty 1. As a result of this, many live their lives without the basic necessities of food, water, shelter, clothing.
We are excited to journey with you over these coming days. There will be stories, prayers, bible verses, and actions. Our hearts will be drawn to Jesus and to the issues that break the heart of God.
Peace to you, and see you in a few weeks.
