Product Description
Do Justice
Most humans are born with an innate, general sense of right and wrong. Young children can give a detailed explanation of justice through the eyes of the victim when they feel they have been wronged. In the Do Justice unit, we learn that we are not always correct in our assessments, but the desire for fairness in the world around us is deeply held. Being human means, in part, experiencing the frustration and anger of injustice, and the sense of restoration and wholeness that comes with justice served.

Through this practice, participants will find that Scripture is filled with the themes of liberating justice in ways that are bold and ways that are subtle, always returning to the need to bridge the gap between the world as it is and the world toward which God calls us. So that we may do justice in our lives, this practice explores seeing injustice, checking our own prejudice, speaking up, and doing the work that justice requires.
