FORUM: Pastoring for justice
Pastors, we would love to hear about your experience in leading your congregation toward justice.
Some starter questions that interest us:
Where would you say your congregation is on the road to “doing justice”?
— Well on its way
— Just getting started
— Thinking about it
— Not even willing to consider it
What have you tried doing to help your congregation better understand God’s heart for the poor and oppressed?
How have your people responded?
What has been your biggest challenge?
What has been your biggest joy?
What mercy ministries is your congregation involved in?
Does mercy ministry fulfill God’s requirement of doing justice, or must we also address issues of unjust social systems?
You can share your experience in the comment box, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll compile the responses.
