What does the Lord require of you but to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8b K.J. version (paraphrased)

 

Purpose

Operating under the umbrella of the Session’s Mission and Outreach Committee, the Justice Committee’s purpose is to inform the congregation about justice issues of a global, national or local nature and, where applicable, to suggest avenues of possible action.

Why Have a Congregational Justice Committee?

Knowledge is power.

One person can make a difference.

 

Perhaps the most powerful reason can best be summed up by quoting Edmund Burke, the 18th century Irish statesman and philosopher:

 

“In order for evil to triumph, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing.”
