1. The situation in the Gulf States after Katrina is almost indescribable. Please give what you can to help the hurricane victims. I suggest the Mennonite Disaster Services (more info about MDS here).
2. Spotlight on Darfur. Catez at Allthings2all is putting together a collection of posts on the present situation in Darfur. If you’ve written such a post, she’d gladly add it to her collection. Guidelines here. The first collection goes up September 5th.
3. Stacy Harp, our fearless Mind&Media pres also blogs at Persecution Blog. They are starting a VOM Persecution Blogosphere blogging program. Here, in Stacy’s own words, is the program’s purpose and how it works:
- PURPOSE OF PROGRAM The purpose of the blogosphere program is to encourage you to disseminate information about Voice of the Martyrs on your own blog.
- HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS To participate in the program we require you to do two things:
[1.] Place an banner on your site signifying that you blog for VOM.
[2.] Agree to do a minimum of two posts per month about Christian persecution mentioning Voice of the Martyrs with a link to the main website, the Persecution Blog, and/or the newsletter.
The form to sign up is on the Persecution Blog.
4. Finally, Stacy could use more Mind&Media book and other media reviewers. The responsibilities, benefits and how to sign up are explained here. I’ve been on board for months now and it’s been a totally positive experience – hot-off-the-press books - free! It’s great!
