The Justice Calling
What is a believer's calling and responsibility when confronted with the heart-breaking reality of injustice in our world? Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments reveal that justice is not only close God's heart, but that true biblical justice is tied to righteousness and flows directly from God's own character. In this Groundwork series we'll study scriptures and reflect on the book The Justice Calling: Where Passion Meets Perseverance to inform our understanding of justice from God's perspective, discover our role in responding to injustice both through prayer and action, and find encouragement to continue pursing justice in our life and world today.
