Serve the City: Economic and Social Justice

Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?

Isaiah 58:6

 

As Christians, we are bound to work towards God’s desire for reconciliation, healing and justice in this world. Various ministries examine and promote understanding about the many issues that divide us and work together as well as with partners of other faith traditions (or no religious convictions) to move towards solutions that affirm our commitment to the dignity, compassion, empowerment, and freedom of all people. Only together can we help to build God’s kingdom of justice and peace.
