Children rally for fairness. . .by faith
Recently, I received a copy of the "lobbying" plan developed by a group of 6th grade Sunday School members who live in St. Louis, Missouri. I've reproduced their simple booklet that they created for a trip to their state capitol. They met with representatives to argue for a new state policy that would create an earned income tax provision for working people in their state.
I find the media that they developed for their trip to be most effective.
Even more impressive is the fact that their teachers and their congregation clearly established a link between faith and fairness in public policy.
Seen anything like this coming out of your Sunday School lately?
