Justice is sometimes a loaded word when it comes to church.

It invokes politics and partisanship. Our God calls us to do justice, seek peace, and effect change for a better world. We must be a prophetic voice louder than the voices of hate. The simple act of loving our neighbor is an act of resistance. We serve others through our food pantry, special giving, and supporting the efforts the regional and national settings of our denomination. We have a long way to go until we can proclaim that we have achieved a just world for all, however, we continue to strive for that justice each and every day.
