In Weaving a Future for All Children, Olson and Friedrich use the image of weaving to bring together Biblical and theological imperatives for caring action (the loom); various tools and issues for child advocacy (the warp); and specific, productive ways that individuals and churches can advocate for children (the weft). Newcomers to advocacy will feel welcome and longtime activist will learn new takes on both advocacy and recruiting others to the work. The authors give a broad perspective of the problems children face worldwide and offer well-researched, thoughtfully structured faith responses to the issues.
Olson and Friedrich provide an outstanding appendix, which alone is worth the price of the book. It directs readers t resources, outlines letter writing campaigns and guides advocates towards effective communication with elected officials. In addition, each chapter concludes with reflection questions and bold, specific action steps.
The authors inspire readers to feel that they
help make important changes in the lives of God's children. From "unofficial godparenting" to international activism, dozens of meaningful options are presented. Readers learn to "dream, pray and work" towards deeper discipleship through advocacy.
