30 Days of Love: 7/30

Posted by Jeremie Bateman // January 25th 2013 // soundings, Stories and Voices // no comments

 It can sometimes be a challenge to figure out how to live one’s faith in the world.

In my work, I hear people wrestling with that challenge, trying to figure out how best to respond.  The question can sometimes come down to this: How can we take those values that we hold dear and put them to use in tangible, visible ways?

I think the Standing on the Side of Love campaign gives us (and people of many faith backgrounds with similar values!) that opportunity.  Standing on the Side of Love gives us a way to engage with issues that stir our passions, to respond to hurt, to meet fear and intolerance with love, and to live our faith in vibrant ways.

But here’s the big secret:  Standing on the Side of Love needs you, your ideas, your hopes, your passion, your energy, to grow and become an even more robust and vital force for love in our world.  Check out the ways below for you to be part of the conversation.
