Idea Creation

Micah 6:8 says, “[He] has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” The Church universal tends to be better at following the latter two requirements, rather than the first — “to act justly”. Social Justice as Spiritual Praxis seeks to answer this question. It is a workshop series and curriculum targeting youth and young adults in Christian communities, which provides liberatory theological, moral, and practical bases for addressing the social justice issues in society through a faith-rooted lens. The goal of the series is to help young people in Christian churches see that social justice and spirituality are not at odds, but in fact go hand in hand together, so that they are inspired and trained to enact spiritual resistance against the evils in society as an expression of faith.
