by Tom Sine –
I am celebrating the very good news that God is raising up a new generation that not only care deeply about the urgent issues that facing our neighbors near and far but they want to do something about it. They are creating new innovative forms of social enterprise and local community empowerment that often have a lasting impact in the lives of others.
These new changemakers are comprised of gen Y the 18 to 35. Researchers tell us that their younger sisters and brothers, gen Z, are even more intent on making a difference in the lives of others than gen Y. In my book I argue that that I suspect that the Spirit of God is raising up a new generation, largely outside the church, to awaken up followers of Jesus to the opportunity to join these young changemakers in becoming much more people of compassion, creativity and action.
This is an introduction to the video below that answers key questions I address in Live Like You Give A Damn! Join the Changemaking Celebration.
As a discuss these questions I am sure you will discover, as I have, that we all have much to learn from this new generation about how we can join them in creating our best neighborhoods, our best world and in the process often our best lives as well!
Why would anyone want to settle for less and miss the best? Why would anyone want to miss out on discovering how God can use our lives, in concert with a new generation, to make a lasting difference in the lives our neighbors… in times like these? As you listen to these interviews I would welcome your questions, feedback and pushback about this remarkable new changemaking celebration.
I would also welcome the opportunity to learn about innovative ways you are already involved in changemaking. I will share a sampling with of your innovations and feedback with the many others who are interested in learning more about this remarkable new changemaking celebration at my blog site newchangemakers.com

Thank you Tom! A much needed topic for such a time as this. Our friends at Sozo Foundation are inspiring me in this way. They reach out in a local township with innovative ways and are bringing change. Blessings!
Loved what you have written about your friends at Sozo Foundation – it is inspiring.
I truly believe, we are all the church, and not the building. We are all part of God’s creation.
