A few of the crew from church have been rounded up by Jess W (who does occasional volunteer work at TEAR Australia) to get involved in their Youthy/YoungAdults blog Advoc8 on Social Justice issues.
I was a tad hesitant at first as I have other commitments like Gush to which I’ve been slack about lately. But have realised that possibly the best way to challenge myself about social justice (because I do care, but I’m often at a loss for what to do) is to start forcing myself to consistently consider these kind of issues.
It doesn’t take a lot of effort for me to write a blog post. I enjoy it. And the only drawback being that I post a lot of crap unless inspiration strikes me (and I shouldn’t fill their site up with ‘a lot of crap’ – that’s what this blog is for.)
Anyhoo, I was inspired this morning by something. So bit the bullet and wrote a post.
NB: As Paul pointed out, Dont go directly to advoc8.org – you don’t get to the right spot (great banner), it needs to be: advoc8.tear.org.au
*takes the credit for finding out that advoc8.org is actually nothing to do with this*
let’s all try http://advoc8.tear.org.au instead!
Nothing like a bit of encouragement by way of a comment…. maybe I can keep this up now and then!
