Justice: Faith in Action
Ours is a faith that seeks and does justice. That work is as, the Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker says, a “striving for what is not yet but could be.”
A church doing justice work differs from the way other organizations or institutions do justice work in its grounding, framing, and motivation. In what guides us as we do the work. In what we return to when threatened by discouragement or violence. If we want to go the distance then we must have a firm footing to live out of not just morally or intellectually or ethically but spiritually.
“This faith requires something of us in return for being our ideological home, and that requires that we get up, get out, and build the world we dream about.” – Dr. Takiyah Amin, content director for Black Lives Matter UU
