FAITH + JUSTICE SERIES
Today’s “issues” of injustice aren’t “issues” – they are real people. Join us in considering what opportunities and hurdles there are to loving our neighbors as ourselves, right here in West Michigan.
“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.” -Talmud
