Can we really make a difference in the world today?
Well, according to Barry Rodriguez, director of WorldNextDoor.org, yes, we can! Join Jane VanOsdol as she and Barry discuss how we can pray effectively for the huge issues of oppression and injustice in the world–and what we can actually DO to make a difference.
Barry travels around the world to spotlight the injustices he finds–not just to report about them, but to get people involved in changing lives. You don’t want to miss this podcast. If you’ve always struggled to get beyond the generic prayer that says, “Lord, please stop human trafficking,” then tune in today for some concrete things you can pray and do. Just click on the sideways triangle below to listen, or you can find Only By Prayer on iTunes.
Here’s a few updates from Barry:
First of all, if you haven’t seen our website yet, be sure to check out www.worldnextdoor.org. In fact, next week will be a great time to start reading because we’re kicking off a collection of “2010 Favorites.” And this spring I’ll be writing from Kenya, Haiti and Israel!
We have a Facebook fan page, of course. Then there’s our twitter feed. Oh, and my personal twitter feed. If you’re interested in joining our work financially, there are plenty of ways to give.
Finally, in case you want to take a deeper look at some of the photos I used at the seminar, you can find some of my favorites on my brand new Flickr account. I’ll be updating it with my best shots from each trip I take in the future.
