"I have two words on my heart for 2018 - 'kindness' and 'understanding'. Both of these take us a long way in demonstrating love to people. I am so thrilled to have Jeremy and Rebecca sharing with us. You will love them!"
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. - Proverbs 31:26.
Love, Lyn Alcorn.
We are so excited to host you for She Stands for Justice 2018. The injustices of our world can seem so overwhelming that it's almost easier to ignore them. We want to encourage you and show you how you can face these injustices and make a difference in your world. Justice is more than doing good in this world, it's at the very centre of who God is, and therefore it is at the very centre of who you are. Come join the conversation...
