John Legend’s new series on YouTube doesn’t just shine a spotlight on social issues—it makes it easier than ever to get involved in making a difference.
As Legend explained to RELEVANT last year, enacting social change is an important part of his personal calling and the faith he was raised with. He said,

 

Jesus was kind of a revolutionary in his own way. He was fighting the power and speaking out for the underdog almost all the time throughout His life. That’s why He was so dangerous, and that’s why the powers that be wanted Him to not be around anymore. I think there’s been more of a conversation about that lately too. I think that’s a good thing …

I think it’s important that we continue to examine [Jesus’] words and not to project what our own political motivations are onto Him, but to actually pay attention to what He actually said. What He said about the poor, what He said about loving one another and all the things that He preached, I think sometimes we lose sight of that.
