The Common Good

Jim Wallis at the North Park Justice Summit and Chicago Reload

Date: April 24, 2012

Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners, talks about biblical justice. He says that worship is an act of justice and justice is an act of worship. But what is justice? Simply put, it is making things right. Restoring broken relationships – relationships between people, groups, structures, systems, the land, and God. Restoring rightness. Wallis challenges young Christians to decide what is wrong in the world. What has God put on your heart that has you agitated? What is not right? Name it, share it with others, engage it, and figure out how to make it right. This is what God is calling us to.
