"Let justice roll down like everlasting waters."

If you have watched the news lately, you know that there are major events impacting large numbers of people: the Ebola outbreak, human trafficking, sheer brutality by Muslim extremists, domestic violence highlighted by the NFL, and much more. The question for us as Christians is how do we respond so that we are always people of hope? How do we engage in healthy conversations to empower change? 

So, as we stand around the water cooler at work, and the coffee bar at church, and in the yoga studio, talking with folks who are angry and frustrated, and feeling hopeless about the world, we can change the conversation! We can effect change by asking alternative questions:

  1. Where do you see God being able to impact the situation?
  2. Is there anyone working for good in the midst of it?
  3. What words of grace can you add to the conversation?

When we reflect hope and peace and joy, we become more like Jesus!
