Continuing our weekly conversations . . .
-
The deal: Each Thursday, we announce a question of the week. We seek to ask questions that spark interesting conversations, whether it simply be about books, traditions, spiritual disciplines, more theological matters, or anything related to life in general. You can join in our conversations two ways:
-
1. Leave a comment with your thoughts!
-
2. Or, if you prefer, post an answer on your own blog and leave us a link to your post so we can comment and add to the conversation. If you post on your own blog, you are welcome to use the picture above as long as you link back to us somewhere in your post.

This week's question . . .
-
In light of this week's articles concerning ways which we can help to alleviate injustice in the world, do you have a particular outreach ministry which you admire and respect? Gracy shared some of her favorites (NightLight International, International Justice Mission, etc.). What are some of your favorite ministries? Please leave a link to their website, if they have one, and tell us what sort of work they do.

  1. I love Free Set. I don't know a whole lot about them, but I have a t-shirt that I love and my older sister has a bag from them.

    They go and rescue children from sex slavery. Love 146 was the girl who started the whole charity, but still has not been found/rescued.

  3. I love Danita's Children. They have been working with Haitian orphans, meeting their basic needs such as food, roof, education and love. And now that Haiti has been even more affected by the earthquake, God has enabled them to keep bringing Jesus' love to those little ones.

  4. I have been blessed by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Their motto is "Helping the Thinker Believe. Helping the Believer Think." The RZIM team travels the world giving a reasoned defense for the existence of God.

    At first, I did not think that RZIM would qualify as a ministry that helps alleviate injustice in the world. But I changed my mind. It fits perfectly.

    The Holocaust started with the intelligentsia. Friedrich Nietzsche said God was dead, and eventually men's actions conformed to their beliefs.

    We must now restore the foundation of justice -- the belief that God exists. He created all men equal. He created us in His image, and we have value. Without that confidence, we will never have justice in the world.
