Tony Jones has built a community of readers that discuss faith and theology on his blog, Theoblogy. But as Tony prepares to head to Sri Lanka, he has a new challenge for his readers- to move beyond discussion and into action. Read on to learn how Tony has invited his readers into the Sri Lanka journey.

As I announced recently, I’m going to Sri Lanka next month with World Vision. It will be a trip both exciting and sobering, as I join a half-dozen bloggers to see the work that World Vision is doing among the desperately poor.
Among World Vision’s most successful programs is its Child Sponsorship program. I last sponsored a child from 2005-2007 in Peru, and I had the great privilege of meeting that child during a trip there.
Yesterday, I took the plunge again, sponsoring Afra in Sri Lanka. For $35/month, Courtney and I will be sponsoring education and wellness programs in her village. She is one week older than my youngest child, so charting her development as a young woman will be fun for all of us.
I’d like you to join me.
