    What Can I Do

    Maybe you are like me and over the past few years after seeing social injustice have asked yourself what can I do. I have found myself constantly thinking of ways I can best support my community. After reading When We Stand, I feel equipped to effectively join the fight for social injustice. A major takeaway for me is that our passions will vary. But when you find that cause that keeps you up at night, chase after it. Terence stresses that while on your journey, do not neglect those closest to you, including yourself. Set healthy boundaries, do not overcommit, and be okay with respectfully declining. One thing that challenged me with this book is how Terence reminded readers that our call as disciples applies outside of the four church walls and in our communities. The true work is outside the four walls of the church. I recommend this book to any believer looking to do more for Christ.

    Terence Lester helps the reader find clarity in charting the waters of how to pursue the work of biblical social justice, while at the same time helping to do the some of the necessary work of cultivating the heart and making sure that our motives are grounded where love for neighbor can flourish in the context of community, as a corrective to our individualistic Western culture. This book finds a sweet spot in being practical and also shepherding the heart of the reader to prepare them for the journey of justice oriented work. I am super thankful to God for the voice and vision that He has given Terence, through which we can reorient our lives around a better, truer, more creative, and more meaningful prophetic imagination. May this work be brought into the hands of many or the common good of our communities and our world.

    READ THIS BOOK! Terence is doing great work with the Love Beyond Walls Foundation. As Terence says "We exist to create a world where no one is invisible".

    Don't walk around with blinders on, as the saying goes anyone is one paycheck away..... It does take a village, the village just needs to come together.

    I am on the board of The Love No Ego Foundation as a Volunteer & Intern Coordinator. We are located in Charlottesville, Va.

    "Let's not allow the ego to come in and destroy any and every thing that we are naturally and humanly designed to be and do here on this earth."

    Founder, Freddy Jackson

    Challenging, Needed Reading

    In many ways, this book is a sequel to Lesters previous book, I See You, which I also enjoyed. In this book, Lester asks us to not only see the invisible people in our world, but to find ways to get involved in making a difference. Contrary to my expectations in this political moment, Lester does not tell the reader exactly what to do or how to get involved. His book is a smorgasbord or possibilities. What he is asking is that we take a stand for justice, for righteousness, and for people. When We Stand is a call to the church to get off the sidelines and get involved with the least, the last and the lost. I appreciated his storytelling and was especially struck by the way his ministry responded during COVID-19 (not a need I would have ever been aware of without his writing). Terence Lester is quickly becoming one of my new favorite authors who speaks profoundly and truthfully.

    This has been the most motivational book I've read in a long time. Terence speaks authentically about his social justice journey and shares wisdom he has gained about making deeper connections with people, ways to identify where and how we can be apply our time and talents to uplift others, the necessity of self care and the support of others, and how to be most effective in making an impact in our communities. As someone who comes from a family with a long history of being of service to others I highly recommend When We Stand for both those who are currently active in their community and those who desire to get started doing more for others.
