For today’s Scripture Saturday I am going to focus on a small Christian company that is working to make a big difference in the world. So stick around and learn a little bit about who Joseph’s Grain Publishing is, what they are trying to do, and how you might be able to help them get closer to achieving their goals with this ministry.
According to their website, Joseph’s Grain Publishing (JGP) is a non-profit publishing company with the admirable vision of impacting the world through several facets of their business. The books that they publish aim to tackle tougher topics, such as trafficking and persecution. They also send 60% of the profits from their sales to aid a certain project, such as feeding hungry children in Thailand. Where the money is going to be used is featured on the cover of each book.
Another thing that sets JGP apart from other publishers is that they print and bind the books themselves. That is something you don’t hear very often, but this would help keep the costs down so that a greater part of each book sale can go to help fulfill those projects. They are certainly working hard to be good stewards of the money that comes in through their publishing house.
As of right now they only have one book for sale, which you can learn more about by following this link. Based on the description, it tackles some pretty deep questions such as: What IS Christianity? What does it have to do with the way you live your life? Is it real? Or is it a fabrication? AND…. Where is the evidence?
Their biggest push right now comes through selling some “Bee the Difference” shirts. Their goal is to sell 80 of these, which will allow them to purchase the much-needed IBSN numbers in order to continue to produce and publish books. You can order a shirt by going to this page, and with that purchase you will be helping contribute to the success of their growing ministry and mission.
If you don’t want a shirt, you can also contribute by providing a donation through the link on their website.
Be sure to check out this great publisher who, it appears, will start looking to form a list of authors to become a part of the JGP team. I cannot wait to see how God will use their ministry to bless people around the world and provide readers with material that will present challenging topics and issues that do not often get addressed or discussed.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19 (ESV)
