Just wanted to point your lovely faces to a lovely resource from IVP this week– you can download a free bible study on fighting against injustice–and learn how to become a modern day abolitionist– written by my dear friend, Catherine McNiel

A companion piece to the book Refuse to Do Nothing, by Shayne Moore and Kimberly McOwen Kim, here’s what Catherine writes in the intro:

“How do you think of Christianity? Do you think of it as an individual gift for you–bought by Jesus, given by God–of divine blessing and eternal life? Or do you think of it as the long process of Christ’s body bringing his kingdom, justice, and righteousness to earth? The truth is that Christianity is both these things–requiring and offering new life to our individual spirits as well as our communities. As followers of Christ, we have no choice but to harness the life-changing power of his love and forgiveness, letting it empower us with courage to confront injustice and build God’s kingdom.” 

So, along with Catherine, consider confronting injustice and fighting against shame this week by downloading this free resource. 

In other news, I’m gearing up to head to Maryland to be the keynote speaker at Grace Community Church’s young adult retreat, on the topic of overcoming shame. I’d value your prayers as I finalize my preparations, and even more so, for the hearts of the attenders–that God would move powerfully in their lives. 

I can’t wait to update you. 

May you live shamelessly this week!
