Our broken world can be confusing and overwhelming. But one thing is clear; God calls each of us to serve those in need. That includes you.
In the Story of the Good Samaritan, the neighbor on the Jericho road was a mess. The systemic challenges of a dangerous road and the individual trauma of abuse, left him powerless. The Samaritan didn’t need to be an expert to offer assistance. He just needed to stop.
GOD HAS A PLAN
Jesus stopped. He entered the messiness of our world to restore us in relationship with God and neighbor. He asks us to follow His example. Like the disciples that starts with sitting at His feet and learning His heart.
ACCESS TO JUSTICE
WHY DOES EQUAL ACCESS MATTER?
Think of it this way: Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a life – UNLESS he has no access to the river. Without access, any help provided is in vain and justice cannot roll on like a mighty river.
“I remember so well going to school each day… proudly saying the pledge of allegiance… ‘with liberty and justice for all’. It would be many years before I realized that simply wasn’t true.”
