I rarely do this, but there are a few posts around the Internet this week I hope you’ll read.
First, my friend Mandy at Biblical Homemaking called for prayer and fasting this past Monday about abortion. Before you click away, this isn’t a matter of whether it should be legal or not. It is. This is about helping the hurting. Mandy has one of the most compassionate hearts and graceful writing voices. Read her post detailing the statistics and 5 things we can do as Christians to help.
Second, my friend Marla Taviano is a wonderful advocate for human trafficking issues. This week she posted nine very simple things we can do to make an impact.
Third, Ann Voskamp wrote this week in How to Get Through the Dark Places about a man who ran for 544 miles straight. The post is about light and darkness and I realize as I’m writing this it ties directly into the two posts above.
Clearly, God is moving his people, the light of the world, into the dark places. We all should have a bit of time this weekend to prayerfully consider some next steps. I’m going to reread these and do the same.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
