What does it mean to be a justice-seeking church?

10 June 2023 14:45
As Christians we are called actively to do justice, show loving kindness and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).  From time to time, the Methodist church commissions studies to help us better understand how God is asking us act in the world today. The most recent report focuses on justice.
It lays down Principles to help us talk about our understanding of God’s justice which we can use as a tool to help us in our discussions and actions.

It sets Priorities to help us in making a difference. For example, through campaigning, being with those experiencing injustice and offering support, building relationships, or striving to tell a different story of a just world. Each person and church can get involved according to their gifts, passion and location.

Finally , it gives Practices  which challenge us to consider what we are doing to bring about change in a way that is consistent with our beliefs about God’s justice.

We're happy to receive input or get involved in the conversation at any of our activities, as we strive to be a justice-seeking church based at the heart of Killamarsh.
