32,000 to go

a Biblical thought...
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (Philippians 4:6)

a Book thought...
God's choice to communicate in so many diverse ways forces us to put our faith in him, not a method. (p42)
a Dave thought...
I caught up with Nath Moulds from Oasis in Sydney this week and he put me on to their new campaign...

Oasis, the Salvation Army’s youth outreach organisation in Surry Hills has embarked on an ambitious plan to reduce youth homelessness.
The campaign entitled ‘32,000 to Go’ was launched this month to raise awareness of the 32,000 people under the age of 24 who sleep outdoors every night.
Director of Oasis, Paul Moulds, said the campaign was about ensuring marginalised young people have access to the opportunities, support and help that they need and deserve. It seeks to activate a grass roots network involving everyone from individuals through to businesses and governments.
‘’We’re asking people to visit the campaign website, and spread the word by using Facebook and Twitter, by calling talkback radio, by writing letters to editors and MPs,’’ Captain Moulds said “We can no longer ignore this issue, and neglect our youngest and most vulnerable citizens”.

Just a thought.
