Advocating for Justice - Resources and Ideas
So much to do so little time - as we look around our neighborhoods, cities, state, country and the world, we can become overwhelmed by what we see. The opportunities for helping people, curbing violence, bringing peace, sustaining creation are endless.
Focus is key. Every individual is a link in God's plan. We must ask the question through prayer where and how is God calling me to action? Each of us is one small piece in God's master web, but without each of us the web is broken. Nonviolent action means taking planned action in a nonviolent way to resolve issues of injustice and violence in our time.
