Opportunities for Study and Action Groups

CDF is pleased to announce a new book, Hope for the Future: Answering God’s Call to Justice for Our Children, by CDF religious affairs advisor Shannon Daley-Harris with a foreword by Marian Wright Edelman.

The publisher, Westminster John Knox Press, writes:

“Whether a parent or pastor, child advocate or Christian educator, professional or volunteer working with children, we yearn for both comfort and challenge, vision and validation, hope and help as we seek to make a difference in the lives of children.

In Hope for the Future, Shannon Daley-Harris draws from over twenty-five years of work with the Children's Defense Fund to offer twelve meditations for those working to create a better world for our children. Each meditation focuses on passages of Scripture and weaves together moving stories of children, startling statistics about the challenges facing children, and inspiring examples from other movements and faithful leaders that came before us. Questions for faithful response after each meditation will prompt further reflection and action.

This inspirational book can be used as a devotional, in Bible study discussion, or during a social action committee's discernment.”

We invite child advocates to use this new resource in monthly study and action groups. Get started now.
