How can the Church work for the flourishing of all society? Often, Christians care deeply for those within our church and see those outside its walls as “causes” or “issues” rather than image bearers with equal dignity and need. Our criminal legal system has replaced the Church as the first and longest responder to violence. How can the Church assume its rightful place in caring for the most marginalized, lock arms with our neighbors to learn from AND serve them, and build a culture where our response to violence and harm centers love rather than punishment, police, or prisons?
This conversation is designed to inspire and equip God’s people to move from understanding to engagement, from passivity to action, from listlessness to love. Join CCDA members, Jamila Hodge & Sam Heath, of EJUSA for this informative microcourse.
