Summit Report #1 - Gary Haugen
Gary Haugen's talk was life changing. Gary is the founder of International Justice Mission - "an international human rights agency that rescues victims from violent forms of oppression, including slavery, sexual exploitation, trafficking, police brutality and illegal property seizure."
I found Gary's talk and life to be inspiring and challenging. Here are some good quotes from Gary:
- Just because I am leading, and people are following doesn't mean its what God is wanting.
- What is God's plan for justice? We are! God doesn't have another plan
- If you want your leadership to matter, then lead in the things that matter to God.
- If you say, "Justice is not my thing. . . " then, God is not your thing. God is about justice.
- Jesus did not call us to make us safe, he has come to make us brave.
- Anyone can lead people in what is "cheerful", "safe" and "easy"
- Your community needs to know that those without a voice have a man of justice."
- Being brave comes from prayer.
