My daughter said I was becoming “quite the activist” lately. I hadn’t intend to become an activist. I wasn’t even sure I liked the sound of it. So I looked it up.
ac-tiv-ist [ak – tuh – vist] – noun an especially active, vigorous advocate of a cause, esp. a political or social cause.
And I think she’s right. In less than a month I’ll be at the World Vision Women’s Conference
in Washington DC where I will advocate, vigorously advocate, I might add, according to the definition, for some specific social causes. To be honest, I didn’t like the sound of “social cause”. Seemed a little too radical. Until I looked it up.
so-cial [soh – shuh l] cause [kawz] of or pertaining to the life, welfare and relations of human beings in a community; activities designed to alleviate certain unfavorable conditions of life in a community, esp. among the poor.
That is exactly what I’m going to do. And I like the sound of it.
This week I’d like to give you a glimpse into the social causes that have invaded my life and heart over the past few years. By the end of the week maybe you’ll find yourself to be an activist too.
