Transitions at Activist Faith

posted by Dillon Burroughs

After more than 1,000 posts over the past three years and now a book, Activist Faith has been a huge part of my life. More than I could have ever imagined, Activist Faith has allowed the opportunity to connect with faith-based leaders and activists around the world, including you, who are making change and creating better stories wherever you go.

That’s why it is bittersweet for me to announce that I will be ending my run of blogging with Beliefnet.com. I’ve deeply appreciate the community and staff support from Beliefnet.com, especially the opportunity they gave to begin Activist Faith in its start. Though I am parting with Beliefnet, it’s not due to any problem with them. Instead, emphasis has been shifting at Activist Faith for some time from a blog to a movement of many voices living out their faith.

In the process of blogging for Activist Faith, I’ve often been reminded of Matthew 5:16 that teaches, “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” I firmly believe the stories we have shared together are telling a better story about the good deeds God’s people are doing today. My prayer is that those on the outside see our love for God and others and that it points them closer to our heavenly Father.

I look forward to continuing the journey with you at ActivistFaith.org. Join us, share your stories, and let us continue to not merely read the Word; let’s do what it says! (James 1:22)

-Dillon
