I regularly am blessed to hear stories of how The Justice Conference touches and changes lives. A big event is kind of an abstract thing, but the number of testimonies of people being changed or encouraged makes it both tangible and meaningful.
Here’s a short note from someone who found me on Facebook:
I just got done listening to your talk at the Justice Conference and I want to thank you so much for putting this event on. For one, your message was on point…and your humility shines through. Just last month, my wife and I moved to Dhaka (then to Kolkata) to specifically work on justice issues (likely partnering with IJM) and to live in solidarity with the poor in slums. I think my biggest struggle in the last 5 years or so that God has been working on me, was that I felt so isolated (by and large) from the greater Evangelical community that didnt understand what God was doing in my life and the world…..wow, now we have a whole generation being called the Justice Generation. Anyway, just wanted to share my story a bit and give you some encouragement from a fellow follower of Jesus and the Way and to ask you to keep it up…its conferences like these that give this central characteristic of God/Jesus and theological imperative momentum for the common good of all.
