Although Christians are called to live a lifetime of righteousness, we recognize that a denomination-wide annual Day of Justice will enable churches to experience a unity of response to God’s call for Biblical justice. This day will serve as a designated time for congregations to consider the meaning of Biblical justice, to lament injustices in the world, and to commit themselves to the transforming work of standing alongside people whom society oppresses and pushes to the margins. Scripture promises us a future of renewal and restoration, a righting of all broken relationships between people and God. Jesus calls us to stand up, be kingdom workers, and begin that renewal now in our own context and beyond our churches’ walls.

You can find me on Righteous Road
– that’s where I walk–
at the intersection of Justice Avenue.
—Proverbs 8:20 MSG
