Message: Let Justice Roll
As compassionate Christians, it is our responsibility to understand that none of us is free while any injustice exists. Love, kindness, compassion, freedom and justice are essential tenets, not just of Christianity, but of a civilization that can endure and thrive.
Let us work toward and pray for a day that will bring true equality among all humans.
Imagine the energy we could harness, the love we could create, the peace that could exist - if we accepted one another and worked as one.
"... And so let us live, and work, and pray, Until justice rolls down like water, And flows strong and free like a neverfailing stream. For we believe that the living God is just And that the true and living God loves justice.
from "The Justice Creed" Brian McClaren
