The leaves in Michigan are beginning to make their descent to the ground, which means around the corner is snow… for now we will be thankful for every day of sunshine, warm breezes, and the ability to see green grass. Here are ideas for talking justice with your family.

Poverty: We should be talking about it. 3 TVs and No Food: Growing up Poor in America.

Literacy: Barbershop reading.

Education and Technology: Bicycles bringing the internet to rural India. 

Forgiveness: An Amish community and radical forgiveness. 

Creation Care: Urban Gardens and in Paris! 

War: Artist Rania Matar photographs the children of war in Yemen.

Health Care: Umra Omar bringing health care to coastal communities marked with conflict via boat.

Prayer: Litany for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church 

Disability: Wheelchair costumes that are epic. 

Hunger: What about this creative solution to hunger? Paying for parking tickets with food pantry items. Found by our friend Diane Harvey straight from Australia.

What is your family talking about?
