Living faithfully isn’t about attending church. Being Christian is about living in right, just relationships with other people and the rest of creation. How can Christian parents avoid being overcome with the pressure to be a perfect parent and make a difference in the world?
Parenting for a Better World shows there are all sorts of ways we can make a real difference from within our own homes. Even busy parents can work with their families for global justice. Without pressing you to do it all, this book offers spiritual resources for reflecting on the relationship between your faith, your calling for justice, and your commitment to parenting. Find encouragement from fellow parents who weave together stories of caregiving, activism, and scripture that affirm your sense of calling. Plus it offers practical strategies to help committed (and over-committed) people integrate caregiving and justice work into their daily lives.
Parenting for a Better World is made possible in part by a gift from Mike and Laura Hatler.
Each of the 4 featured speakers listed above will give a 30 minute presentation. Following everyone's presentations, we will have a book signing so don't forget to bring your copy of Parenting for a Better World!
