I am continuing the Justice Chronicles with Blake Mankin. Welcome Blake to the blog!
South Sudan is the world’s newest nation full of some of the world’s most beautiful people facing some of the world’s most difficult challenges.
If you were to travel to there today, you would quickly notice how difficult it is for people to get clean water to drink. For many communities, water sources can be miles away, and even then–they’re often contaminated. After decades of war, still the most dangerous reality plaguing the people of South Sudan is a lack of adequate sanitation.
Can you imagine that being a reality in your own context?
Chapter 15: What is Still Needed
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. – Edmund Burke
It has been such a pleasure connecting with local advocates and experts in my community to learn, discuss, and educate locals about human trafficking. Over the past few weeks, I have received several emails from people asking me simply, “What can I do? What are the next steps?” These are important questions. I’m hosting the last event in our “Refuse to do Nothing” Human Trafficking Education & Awareness Series next weekend and I look forward to sharing next steps with my local community.
When I decided to complete my last independent study on the topic of biblical justice, I had Dr. John Perkins book, Let Justice Roll Down, at the top of my reading list. Prior to beginning this study, I had heard Dr. Perkins speak on couple occasions. Having been in his presence, I observed firsthand the amount of respect people have towards him, not because they worship him but rather because of his integrity; his bold passion for God, God’s Word, reconciliation and justice; and because of his story. I wanted to know more about his story.
