Justice and Pie

“These are a few of my favorite things…”
– The Sound of Music

“I just figured, if I was going to change the world, I’d do it with cookies.”
– Stranger than Fiction

Check out the Justice Pie Project, an initiative put together by a family in Barrio, Ontario.  They have spent the summer compiling pie recipes and statistics on slavery and trafficking.  And last week, they had a celebration of Justice Pie Day.  In spite of a power outage, they baked 18 pies, raised $300 for the International Justice Mission, and educated their neighbors about slavery.  And along the way they enjoyed fellowship, community, games, and a potluck dinner.

What an inspiring (and delicious) example of what the church can be!
