How A Little Thing Began My Journey

It’s funny the impact little things can have. In the middle of a sight-seeing binge two years ago I decided to pop into a certain museum in Stockholm and stumbled into a temporary display on ethics in the shopping realm. That little display started me on a journey that led me to orphanages in Cambodia and the Red-light districts in Thailand, into books and onto one website after another, always asking the same question–how can I follow God’s commands to love justice and care for the oppressed in the middle of a system that in many places thrives on taking advantage of the weak? More simply, How can I live here?? How can I honor God in this area of my life? As I learned about one issue after another, it was easy to become discouraged. But I remember the start of my journey. If such a small thing as a random display in a museum could change the course of my life in one hour, maybe the small changes I can make on a daily basis can change the lives of others as well. Seeking out those small changes is what this blog is all about. It promises to be a complicated journey. But you are welcome to join in.
