Gospel Justice: Calling for Change

The gospel changes us, deeply transforming us into people who long for righteousness in every square inch of our world. Where we discover injustice we are compelled to act – to learn, to pray, to send others and potentially go ourselves. That is what moves our friends of  The Wrecking to fight against slavery around the world, and that is what moves us, too.

Today I simply want to draw attention to the issue of young girls being married way too early. Last night on MSNBC there was a brief photoblog on child brides, and I want to encourage you to take time to look at the photos and grow in your understanding. I am also calling us to pray that God would raise up people to help bring an end to this type of abuse.
