Today this question popped up in our survey:
Hello, #DunkerPunks! Bill from @OnEarthPeace here. How can we help?
-Bill Scheurer, Illinois/Wisconsin District
Great question Bill! And I hope your question inspires other Dunker Punks to ask the same question of themselves. We have two broad answers: We want you to listen, and we want you to speak up! First of all, listen. By reading dunkerpunks.com and keeping your ears open to any other sources that promote the movements of Dunker Punks in the Church of the Brethren and other peace builders, you will find opportunities to pray, encourage, support, and get involved! Today, dunkerpunks.com got a submission about a fledgling movement called Muna Daya, started by several Church of the Brethren youth who felt moved at National Youth Conference to do something about the situation in Nigeria. Since then, we’ve started working with these youth to see what we can do to support their mission, and maybe you can too. You see, the more you listen and search for faithful servants who are passionate about following Jesus in radical, innovative ways, the more opportunities you will find to help. The other answer we have for you is something you’ve already done today: Speak Up! By reaching out to dunkerpunks.com, you’ve shown what true Dunker Punks do: step out from the crowd and get involved. Don’t wait for someone else to do something, do something yourself! Of course, we know that all of you at On Earth Peace have a lot of experience with stepping out, speaking up, and doing something, but our hope is that everyone else reading this will feel compelled to do the same. And since you’ve stepped up, we want to give you a few specific things you can do as well. First of all, we hope that you connect with Muna Daya and any other groups that you see featured on dunkerpunks.com. See what you can do to help them. Second, we’ll give you a few questions, because we want to step out too. How do you think we can work together to build peace? How can we help you? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to working with you more in the future! To see how other Dunker Punks have responded to God’s call to step forward, check out our responses page! Help support dunkerpunks.com as we move to work more closely with On Earth Peace by offering words of prayer and support on facebook or twitter. If you’ve taken a step forward to be a radical follower of Jesus, and you want to work with dunkerpunks.com, or if you want prayers, support, and assistance from the Dunker Punk community, let us know in the form below!
