From Odyssey Networks’ Faith on the Record series: With dramatic news happening here in the U.S. all week, our mainstream press isn’t covering Nepal’s dire situation effectively. In terms of earthquake relief, with thousands dead and injured, the overwhelmed Nepalese government and military aren’t being effective in helping hundreds of thousands of displaced survivors. But waiting for those systems won’t work. “We waste time thinking about the ‘ideal’ responses, as opposed to: What are the do-able, real responses? Where can I make a difference?” Watch my video for more insight and discussion.
Odyssey Networks tells the stories of faith in action changing the world for the better. Their stories explore a wide range of issues including peace, tolerance, social justice and the environment.
