Last evening my daughter, Laura, and I went to see the documentary filmĀ 58:. 58: is a Christ-centered global initiative to end extreme poverty. The name comes from Isaiah 58 where God desires that his people carry out a True Fast, one that cares for the poor and oppressed.

I am impressed by this group’s mission and message. Their vision is clear, compelling, and, according to them, inevitable. 58: is a group of organizations who are cooperating together to speed the fulfillment of their common goal: end extreme poverty. Their partnership builds confidence that their vision can and will beĀ achieved.

Who wouldn’t want to be part of something this worthy and exciting? I wish all our vision statements would be this powerful.
