180 Degrees Youth Series
A timely, no-holds-barred look at the issues that Arab youth face. Written by the well-known Egyptian author and TV personality, Dr. Awsam Wasfi, these booklets deal with the psychological roots of our brokenness and the spiritual healing needed.
Yes You Can
In reflecting on recent changes in Egypt and the Arab world, Dr. Awsam suggests that we only truly feel a sense of belonging in our communities when we have the power to change and impact them.
He states, “Knowing precisely when change starts is not as important making sure that it does start.” With social or political change come responsibility. This responsibility is integral to the message of the Kingdom of God. In proclaiming the Gospel, believers must also face the evils in society—thus functioning as the salt and light that Jesus called us to be.
The motivation behind taking social responsibility cannot be a lust for power—rather, this responsibility must lead to service to the poor. In this way we work to build those things that are close to God’s heart—dignity, freedom and justice.
