Eyes on the prize

January 25, 2012

“Ain’t no man on earth control the weight of glory on a human soul…

 

 

Sara Groves wanted to write a song for the International Justice Mission.  She found this old civil rights song and realized there was no reason to change a word of it, so she re-wrote the music and let the words stand.  It is haunting and beautiful.

Project Jubilee has raised $285 in the past five days.  We are 6% towards the goal.  I am really excited.  Someone is going to get their jubilee.  Even if it takes an entire year to do it, it’s going to happen.  Someone, maybe a lot of someones, will no longer be a slave.   They will no longer be subjected to violence and oppression.  They will no longer be forced to labor or perform sexual services in humiliating, dehumanizing conditions.  They will know freedom.  And they will know that someone who never met them cared enough to do what it took to make it happen.

You can be one of the ones who cared enough to make it happen.  Join Project Jubilee.  We can make this happen.

“When you see a man walk free, it makes you dream of jubilee…

When you see a child walk free, it makes you dream of jubilee…

When you see a family free, it makes you dream of jubilee…

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.”  -Sara Groves
