In 2012, Art Against Oppression toured the Southwest to raise awareness about the social justice issues of human trafficking, child soldiers and government oppression. As I developed the exhibit, researched the issues and created artwork I began to struggle with bitterness and depression. It really began to weigh me down.
It seems that many of the folks that are “in the fray” are struggling with similar issues. In the days leading up to our tour I prayed, asking the Lord to help me understand why I was struggling and He took me back to a familiar passage of Scripture and THE fundamental element with which social justice must be partnered.
