Synod 2017 asked churches to hold an annual Day of Justice and this year it falls on Sunday, August 15th.
"This day will serve as a designated time for congregations to consider the meaning of biblical justice, to lament injustices in the world, and to commit themselves to the transforming work of standing alongside people whom society oppresses and pushes to the margins.”
Justice looks like many different things in a variety of contexts, but we encourage your congregations to mark this day either this week or in a coming week and pray for God's work of justice in an unjust world.
Check out the Day of Justice page on the CRCNA website for background information and resources, including:
In addition, Worship Ministries has shared this roundup of Justice resources. This list of resources will help you integrate sermons, prayers, and litanies about immigration, refugees, poverty, hunger, and the persecuted church into your regular worship practices.
