As I mentioned yesterday, I'm dedicating this week to information about and ways to help fight poverty and homelessness and learn more about refugees.
One of the quickest, easiest ways I've found (so far) is by signing up for emails from the International Justice Mission. They help me stay informed on issues that must be bring God to tears (and so I must cry out too) AND provide quick ways to make a difference just by signing my name to a petition. Because one of the causes of poverty and social injustice starts with legislation.
Really, it's hard to come up with an excuse not to get involved when all I need to do is fill out a few fields to add my name to a petition.
But they also have ways to delve more deeply into helping unravel the knotty issues of earthly living. Here's a link to their "Getting Involved" page if the Lord is tugging on your heart strings to learn more and do more.
And if you know of other resources which provide simple, clear strategies for fighting poverty, homelessness and modern-day slavery, please comment with the information.
