Digesting the Justice Conference
In 2012 I attended the Justice Conference, here in Portland. It was amazing. Like conferences often are, it was a fire hose of information. When I left the conference late Saturday night, I was over-full. I wanted to reflect, to not open my mouth for weeks. The friend I rode with felt the same and we made the drive home mostly in silence. At one and the same time I was overwhelmed by the need I had encountered, as well as excited and motivated to see how I and my family could make a difference. I felt like I could journal for days without even scratching the surface.
It really challenged me in my thinking. Why is it that Christians are just so indifferent?
