Connecting Faith and Justice
The gospel of Jesus Christ has great power. One expression of this power is how it transforms our hearts and lives. As we follow Jesus and the gospel sinks deeper into our hearts, so we develop new passions, new interests and new behaviours. Powerfully, the gospel will birth in faithful believers a passion to see justice come.
The lifestyle of a faithful follower of Jesus will increasingly demonstrate a heart for those who are vulnerable and victims of injustice. Justice is not something that is to be outsourced to professionals. It is not something that is only for those who are ‘wired that way’. The pursuit of Justice is something that every Christ-follower is to engage. The God of Justice leads his people to pursue justice.
These resources are intended to give helpful tools, wisdom and insights to equip believers who are at different stages of connecting faith and justice. Through these, we trust that you will take a few more steps in your journey of justice
“If you were to be challenged to have a conversation with someone different than you, how difficult would that be? Do you naturally have deep relationships with a diverse group? How we design our lives and interact with society affects our perspective and our ability to do justice.”

“So this is the article about the things I wish I’d said. And why I wish I’d said them. And how much I still love the people behind the words. I wish I’d found a way to say to these people that the things they were saying, while not untrue, were incomplete.”
