Lois is passionate about injustice and shares some practical ways in which we can be God’s mouthpiece for Justice in this Sunday’s service which you can see here:
Here are some websites from her which give more information about how you can get involved in a varitey of causes:
Organisations that I mentioned:
https://www.christianaid.org.uk/get-involved/salt-business-network or https://www.christianaid.org.uk/get-involved/corporate-partnerships – for business leaders/those who work in the private sector.
https://www.christiansinpolitics.org.uk/ – for people wanting to engage more in politics
https://www.tearfund.org/about_you/action/the_world_rebooted/ – a great campaign. The first phase has finished but the second phase is coming soon. However there’s nothing to stop you sending a message to your local MP or 10 Downing Street telling the government how you want the UK to ‘reboot’ after the pandemic. (When you write to politicians, don’t forget to be encouraging and thankful).
All the above websites have great resources.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000mn4n/extinction-the-facts – A fantastic documentary about the effects of humans on the planet, it’s implications and some suggestions of what we can do about it. It also looks at how and why coronavirus originated.
https://learn.tearfund.org/ – this is for learning more about justice issues and has a lot of bible studies.
https://newint.org/ – a news magazine with articles about things like climate, democracy, economics, technology, human rights, migration, war and peace.
When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert. A book on how to do poverty alleviation (locally and internationally) in a way that doesn’t harm those we are trying to help! A great book based on best practice in sustainable development and a biblical understanding of poverty alleviation. It is straightforward, practical and very helpful. I would recommend it to those who are involved in or interested in ministry to the materially poor and want to learn more about doing this effectively. The first few chapters are about the bible, Jesus’ mission on earth and what poverty really is – I would recommend these to absolutely everyone!!
