God is calling you to be a person of action, to be His hands of compassion and healing. "Living Justice" adresses the challenges that keep you from acting out God's justice in the world. Put God's love first and learn to show compassion in a hurting and broken world. 94 pages, softcover from Barefoot Ministries.
Picture this: two students from the same large and growing city are driving home from different church gatherings on a Sunday afternoon. The drive home takes each student by the same ugly, city scenes. Both notice the scars and effects of crime and poverty in the faces of their fellow city-citizens, but their reactions are completely different.One student quickly discards the hurt he sees and then goes back to his normal life. The other student is moved by the scenes, shaped by them, and is motivated to do something to change her world. The world is hurting. Living Justice calls its readers to take action by showing extreme compassion in a world of injustice.
