Justice - What Does It Mean?

Justice. We are all in favor of it, even Superman. But how do we define it? Justice is a rallying cry used today to support often-contradictory calls for action - deport all illegal immigrants? Welcome law-abiding ones? It can be, and is, applied to almost the entire range of human activity…social justice, environmental justice, economic justice, etc.  And as Christians, we believe in a just God demanding a just world. 

In October, Adult Education classes will consider the complex and compelling concept of justice. First we will focus on the values that undergird the legal understanding and practice of justice. Next we will look at the values that inform the Biblical concept of justice. The series will conclude with a panel discussion of different perspectives on justice from members of the congregation.
