HELP US DISCERN OUR UNDERLYING VALUES—which is the Top Priority this week over at OurValues.org with Dr. Wayne Baker. He’s challenging readers to think about the major news stories that are likely to define 2010—in terms of the values driving those timely issues. Dr. Baker kicked off the discussion by describing his own 3 predictions for 2010. What do you see on the horizon? What can you add to this list?

MEET A WISE NEW GUIDE TO SOCIAL ACTION: On Wednesday, this week, we introduced Mae Cannon, an important new author trying to mobilize evangelical Christians to roll up their sleeves and get involved in making “social justice” a reality. While Mae is specializing in her own evangelical realm, her new “Handbook” has a whole lot to say to all Americans. For example, Mae warns against being satisfied with mere charity, when there are major social structures that need to be transformed. If you’ve got a few minutes for thoughtful, challenging reflection this weekend—you’ll start your new year wiser for having met Mae.
