Just Stories?

“We live in a world where bad stories are told, stories that teach us life doesn’t mean anything and that humanity has no great purpose. It’s a good calling, then, to speak a better story. How brightly a better story shines. How easily the world looks to it in wonder. How grateful we are to hear these stories, and how happy it makes us to repeat them.” – Don Miller (A Million Miles in a Thousand Years)

 

On this little blog we want to capture the ‘good’ stories. We want to share the journey’s of ordinary heroes who are making small changes towards living more justly. We hope you’ll be encouraged, challenged and inspired by our friends as they share their heart and their journey’s with us.

This blog isn’t a Christian blog per se, but as I write, my faith is very likely to come through as understanding more about Jesus and what he taught has been much of the driver for change in my own life. However many of the people writing with me on this blog don’t share my faith; they do however share my passion for justice. So don’t be put off when someone writing talks in a way you’re not used to. Keep reading, listening and learning.

Last of all, this blog is very much a community effort… we need YOUR story! If you have a story to share about how you (or someone you know) has been moving towards a more socially, environmentally or economically just way of living, why don’t you get in touch! We’d love to share your story so that together we can inspire others.
