I have always been impressed with John Wesley. Regardless of your theological persuasion no one can deny that he was used greatly by the Lord. Though he was brilliant, he was much more interested in the practical expression of what he believed; something very mush needed in the Western church today.
He was also a great advocate for the poor and oppressed. He spoke often of begging for the poor. This has stuck with me and I very much see my role as the leader of Living Bread Ministries in much the same way. Picking up on this I have been thinking of ways to allow others to advocate, or beg, for the poor.
I have come up with www.bloggersforthepoor.org; a network of bloggers advocating for the work of Living Bread planting churches among the global poor and equipping them to minister in their communities in a comprehensive way. If you have a blog I encourage you to check it out. It’s a great way for you to impact the lives of the global poor and fight things like hunger and human trafficking!
