FREEDOM DAY- POSTSCRIPT
FREEDOM DAY- Postscript
1250 people in attendance. Two local news crews. One massive community art wall. One amazing event.
My buddy Greg Russinger hit this one out of the park. I wish more churches had been there, especially those who have a stated concern for issues of justice locally here in the OC. There were several churches conspicuously absent. Otherwise, there was a lot of great information, a lot of people who went home knowing they cannot look away.
I've begun to pray about writing for the local newspaper, or the OCWeekly (a free weekly newspaper with an insane distribution count and a history of reporting on issues the local newspapers ignore). I'm sort of tired of trying to wake of the church on issues of justice (or injustice) and now I'm feeling God's call to call attention to things that grieve His heart. I need to write these stories for whoever will listen. I need to provoke the people of God to move, or to wallow in their own apathy while the pagans take steps to "do justice, and love mercy".
More on this over on the [Subversive Underground] later this week...I promise.
