Poverty is a Justice Issue

November 12th, 2009 | Posted by | Home Page | Children | Home Page | General | Home Page | Leadership | Home Page | Learn

If we get down to the root of what we are equipping churches to do/act/be in their respective communities – we are asking them to respond to the inequity that is facing their neighbors. We are asking them to tackle systemic injustice head on and we are asking them to do so in partnership with us, because justice isn’t something that can be overturned independently. What if the same sickness that I felt for that young girl was felt on a persistent basis for the communities where we serve? The same injustices are happening there, but inequity has become the status-quo. It cannot continue.
