SLC Celebration Night - Zach Hunter

Zach is a 15-year old high school student who decided he wanted to do something about modern slavery when he was just 12 years old. He started an organization called Loose Change to Loosen Chains that raises money to abolish slavery. He's truly a modern day abolitionist. He seemed like a super cool guy, very articulate. He had a great understanding of God's heart for justice and is actually doing something about it. My gut is that he was probably one of, if not the, biggest hits of the conference for our students.

My favorite thing he talked about was our circle of compassion. Our typical circle of compassion is very small - consists of myself, my family, things I like. God's circle of compassion, in comparison, includes all people everywhere. Our goal should be to increase our circle of compassion. I thought of it in terms of just making a small increase in our circle of compassion. Sometimes we want to go out and change the world all at once....in reality we need to find one cause we can be passionate about and increase our circle in that way.
