Justice

What is justice and how does it relate to your faith?

Justice is love applied to many neighbors. It means more than acting out of a sense of charity, or making a donation or volunteering our time.

"Doing justice" means addressing inequities in political, economic and social systems. It works to restore relations among people and with the earth to the way God intended them to be. It means challenging ourselves to step outside our comfort zones.

Through programs, ministries, and in our daily lives, ELCA members are dedicated to understanding God’s work for justice in the world. We advocate dignity and justice for all people and stand with people in poverty and who are powerless. We lift our voice from an ethic of discipleship and willingness to speak for others as a matter of faith. We participate in activities that relieve misery and result in peace and reconciliation in local communities and among nations.
