Rest, Prune, Act: A Justice Interview with Author & Advocate, Amber Rose

Good Morning,

Justice Point to Ponder:

We were made to do this work with Christ and with others. Humbling ourselves to ask for prayer covering and making sure we are working with others we trust ensures we are not out there all by ourselves and being drained dry. – Amber Robinson

I’m honored to present the third installment of Kelli Trijillo’s mini-justice series. You can catch the interviews for Part 1 (with author and justice advocate, Shayne Moore) and Part 2 (with author, musicians, and justice advocate, Erin Ludwig) here. Today, we get to meet Amber Robinson, author of Mercy Rising: Simple Ways to Practice Justice and Compassion and speaker for Compassion International. Amber graciously answers three questions about living justly:

Justice Too: Opening Our Eyes to See

“Maybe one of the best ways to meaningfully add biblical justice in our lives is to open our eyes wide and see the very ones we usually look past.” – Erin Ludwig

Greetings,

Given the Labor Day holiday, I am moving things back one day on the blog with week. We will pick up with Chapter 4 of The Dangerous Act of Loving Your Neighbor book discussion on tomorrow.

Today, I am sharing the second post from a three part Justice series by writer friend and fellow Redbud, Kelli Trujillo. In this series she asks justice advocates three questions:

1. Why are you passionate about biblical justice?

2. Injustice in our world can seem so overwhelming and discouraging. Ever felt that way? And how can we overcome discouragement & inertia and move forward into hopeful action?

3. What are 3 meaningful things a person could od to take up the cause of biblical justice in their everyday life?

I believe these are three questions that we should each be asking ourselves on a regular basis. I’m including her series because it complements our book discussion and helps us better see others through the eyes of Jesus.

Hear the words of advocate, musician, and author, Erin Ludwig.

Until tomorrow…

 

 

Seeking Justice: An Interview with Shayne Moore

I ask for your prayers as I prepare to visit Senator Kay Hagan’s office in Greensboro, NC on Wednesday to again address a Senate Bill that can make great strides in the fight against human trafficking. Please pray for me and other International Justice Mission (IJM) advocates who will be making these visits over the next several weeks.

When I attended the IJM Advocacy Summit this summer, I met up with fellow Redbud Writers, advocates, and the authors, Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Yim of Refuse to do Nothing: Finding Your Power to Abolish Modern-Day Slavery. This is a powerful book and we will be going through it together at the start of the New Year, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this recent interview that fellow Redbud, Kelli B. Trujillo, had with Shayne:
