How about a bevy of links for your weekend? These are all what I deem “Well said!”
-I probably say this a lot, but this is why we fight…for justice that is. The title for this post comes from this inspiring video.
How are we doing on the current Millenium Development Goals?
-Are you the parent of a tween? The aunt of one? Or an uncle/cousin/relative/friend/teacher/pastor/acquaintance of a tween? Basically if you are alive and know anyone else who is currently a child, you totally need to read this:

-Worlds collide when my friends Adam Ericksen (a UMC’er) and Tripp Hudgins (an American Baptist) have a fantastic 8 part blogalogue regarding Rob Bell’s new book, What We Talk About When We Talk About God. The fun begins here.
-United Methodist uber-blogger, Morgan Guyton, is back at it after a Lenten break. He’s whip smart and engages with a wide range of topics.
-Our friends at CAASE and End Demand IL just launched a new campaign: The Ugly Truth.
“The Ugly Truth” is a multi-media communications campaign that was created by The Voices and Faces Project, an End Demand Illinois partner, to challenge myths about prostitution and remind the public of the harm endured by those in the sex trade. We’ve created our campaign to reach millions of Illinois citizens, calling them to better understand – and work to end – sexual exploitation.
Check it and add your voice to their campaign.
Your turn! What are you reading and writing and doing for justice?
