Time for an R&R Christmas quiz! Can you name these 12 activists who have put their Christian faith into action and helped to change the world:

R&R quiz

How many do you reckon you have got? For the answers and a little bit more about each of them see here

Many of these people are now relatively famous for their achievements. Rather than indulge in hero worship, I think its better to reflect on how their example can inspire and challenge us. How can we put our beliefs into action to make a difference in the world?

If you are interested in a weekend away exploring these kinds of themes then you might be interested in joining this weekend I am leading in February at the beautiful Lee Abbey:

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN A WORLD OF INJUSTICE

19-21 February 2016, Lee Abbey Devon, UK

Today, the richest 1% of people own more than the rest of world combined. We see refugee crises across the globe and growing homelessness and debt in the UK. How do we confront inequality and injustice and express Christ’s hope and compassion towards the poor? And how can our social activism remain connected to our faith? Join us as we reflect on what it looks like to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.

For more information and details about booking see the Lee Abbey website

    Wish I could come for that weekend session! I would love to see England while I am at it. (Always wanted to) But I am too poor, too busy, and too far away (Texas, USA). I strongly doubt I will make it for this one.

    But I am thrilled that the Kingdom Cause is getting attention there. It encourages me to know Jesus is World-Wide!

    Blessings from Texas
