It Was For Freedom
So, something has been brewing on my heart for a while.
To write a blog together with my dear friend Christina who is coordinating Not For Sale South Africa.
Today – it launched. Check it out —> www.itwasforfreedom.org
Some good stuff is going on over there.
Also, with that, I have decided to take participating in lent pretty seriously this year by following along with the Not For Sale “Fast For Freedom” devotional.
Praying, Fasting, Giving, Participating in what God is doing to end slavery.
Read more about it here…
“For this season of lent, Not For Sale has made a devotional available that specifically focuses on the issue of human trafficking. You can download the devotional here. During this time NFS is encouraging people of faith, specifically those who take part in lent, to fast one meal a day and donate the money you would have spent towards the movement to end human trafficking.
Now, I have a confession. I am not a terribly informed religious person. I love Jesus, but I only found out about lent last year, and just a few nights ago, when discussing it with my mum, we actually thought maybe it was a Jewish tradition (#epicchristianfail). Wikipedia solved that moment of confusion for me in a jiffy, but the bigger question was, as a Christian, am I willing to move from talk to action.” …
I really want to encourage you to prayerfully consider joining me in the Fast For Freedom.
In the meantime, check out the It Was For Freedom blog to begin to see stories from the frontlines in both Amsterdam and South Africa. We will be talking about some of the hard stuff when it comes to being a part of the movement.
But don’t worry, I will still be blogging here, but this is still a personal space, and we wanted to create more of a community feeling over at It Was For Freedom, we want to invite other abolitionists to join in the conversation and explore what Freedom means!
Thanks for reading, following, sharing, and caring!
