LOVE THY NEIGHBOR
The JUSTICE CONFERENCE allows followers of Jesus to better understand how our faith enables us to address major justice issues. Among Justice movements there are many causes - ours is a call for Righteousness and Justice. We must follow the example of Jesus and live justly.
The 2017 JUSTICE CONFERENCE theme is “LOVE THY NEIGHBOR.” (Mark 12)
We live in complex and challenging times, globally the threats of terrorism, violence, and environmental challenges continue to shadow our world. Locally, cultural divisions are being exploited for political advantage, whilst poverty and systemic injustice continue to lead to widening equity gaps within our society. BUT the timeless truth which Jesus spoke in Mark 12:30-31 is still our greatest call to Worship and Justice. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love thy neighbor as yourself. ‘ There is no commandment greater than these.” Our understanding of God should compel love for others and engagement in justice.
