Your word , O Lord, is a lamp to my feet and a
light for my path. Psalm 119:105
Life Question: Will you walk with Soul Conversations?
Soul Conversations hosted it's first annual 'Walk for the Persecuted'
in Red Wing, MN last year. A modest gathering made the Walk a great
success! This year for its second annual walking event, it has spread
the word around the world via Youtube to get it going GLOBAL!
This Walk is a more than just a way to bring awareness to the plight
of our persecuted brothers and sisters and the human rights advocates
and lawyers who defend them, it's also a symbolic event. By walking
for our persecuted brothers and sisters and those who defend them,
we are showing our solidarity in asking for their freedom, their right
to live in peace, their right to feel secure and for their human rights
advocates and lawyers to be able to perform their duties without
Persecution effects all aspects of their lives. They are denied employment,
education, housing(or their homes are burned down), they are attacked,
murdered, leaving their families to wonder what will become of them.
Their possessions are often confiscated and destroyed.
Their advocates and lawyers are often jailed, disbarred or even killed for
their defense of them because the work they do for their clients is seen as
acting against their countries national security.
I know you are saying, "We have so many other things to worry about,
why should we care about this?"
Well, let me put this in perspective. We can have all the fame, money,
possessions, friends, family and prestige we want, but if we don't have
our faith, we have nothing. Our faith, our individuality, the things,
that make us who we are, are what is left that we can take with us.
THAT is why we need to come together for this event! Will YOU walk
with Soul Conversations??
