JUSTSalvos E-newsletter – June Edition
We hope this gives you a glimpse of what we are up to.
Just Salvos are part of a journey that works toward a world filled with justice and equality. We invite people to join in that journey, knowing that we ourselves are often the perpetrators of injustice to others. We do not have the answers for you here, but try to ask questions that will help us to unravel the darkness that allows greed and selfishness into our hearts. We hope that Just Salvos will help you to live justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.

This is a cd we are putting together to highlight various justice issues. We have asked artists to contribute songs on issues they are passionate about. We will release the songs as we have them and you can get the cd in full in 2012.

New Website – Justsalvos.com
We have redeveloped the site, and would love your feedback while we are still in the process of fixing things. Most constructive feedback will get a free copy of Brad Ellis’ CD.
We have had a lull in purchases since Christmas so we would love for you to promote Just Gifts to your friends and families. It really is making a difference in the lives of those living in desperate situations.
