Tearfund Lifestyle formerly found on Rhythms.org centres on a whole-life response to global poverty. We are passionate about living out justice through our everyday actions, determined to make a difference in the world. We are taking small, everyday steps to change the way we live and having conversations that help us shape our understanding of what we can do to tackle the problems of poverty and injustice. We believe that together, we can discover what it means to #LiveDifferent.
Often we feel overwhelmed at the injustice in the world. We don’t know where to start or what to do. This website is full of simple, everyday actions which we can do to change the way we live alongside inspiring articles and videos to spur us along. Some actions are easy, some more challenging but all are a fun way to start making some of the changes that you want, but don’t know how to make. We believe that together we are making a difference; on this website you’ll find stories of people thinking globally and living wholeheartedly.
We’re passionate about following Jesus where the need is greatest. For us that means living a different way and this is our worship. As we take these everyday steps, we form habits, and as those habits begin to change us they become rhythms – deep patterns of life. Jesus stood with, cried, celebrated and ate with people on the margins of society. We are inspired to do the same in whatever context we find ourselves in. Our faith affects every part of how we live: ‘Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.’ (Romans 12:1).
