We occasionally run series on Do Justice to provoke deeper discussion and learning about a topic from multiple angles or perspectives. Have a look!


  • In 1492, Indigenous Peoples Discovered Columbus

    Injustice always begins by dehumanizing our neighbors, by refusing to see the image of God in all people. So why do we say that Columbus “discovered” the Americas, when there were already people here? When Columbus landed in North America, he carried with him a powerful weapon--the Doctrine of Christian Discovery, a declaration of the Pope that stated that non-Christian,...

  • What I Would Change about our Immigration Conversation

    So much of the conversation about immigration during this election season has not been based on facts or on the biblical value of philoxenia. There has been much talk about immigrants—and not enough listening to immigrants themselves.

  • Why I Care about Climate Change...

    God created, sustains, and cares deeply about his world, down to the humble sparrow or short-lived wildflower. So many of us share this love for the created world and are eager to obey God's command to serve and protect it (Gen. 2:15). That's why so many of us in the church are deeply concerned about the reality of climate change, and...

  • Live Justly for Lent

    Live Justly for Lent

    Lent is a time when we prepare our hearts to meet our risen Lord at Easter. As followers of Christ, we’re called to live lives rooted in justice, and Lent provides a special opportunity to do just that--intentionally live out the Gospel and seek justice in our daily lives. So how can we live justly during this season of Lent?...

  • What Being Pro-Life Means to Me

    "Life is God's gift to us, and we are called to foster the well-being of all the living, protecting from harm the unborn and the weak, the poor and the vulnerable." (Our World Belongs to God, stanza 11b)

    What does it mean to "foster the well-being of all the living"? It means speaking up against abortion in a way that...

  • Listening to Marginalized Voices Challenge

    In life and in death, Jesus hung out with those on the margins of society. In fact, in the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats, he says that He Himself is at the margins. As His hands and feet, are we listening to people at the margins?  

    A number of CRC agencies have come together to listen to...

  • Speaking Up for a Faithful Budget

    The U.S. federal budget is a reflection of our nation's values. As followers of Christ, we have an opportunity to use the power of advocacy to call for a faithful budget – one that protects and defends the vulnerable. 

    The proposed U.S. federal budget for 2018 fiscal year is alarming -- including dramatic cuts to programs that support people who...

  • Sacred Covenants

    Parents watch with emotion as their child is baptized, because they believe in sacred covenants. 

    We smile when we see a rainbow and remember God’s promise to never again punish the earth with a flood, because we believe in sacred covenants.

    Covenants are important to Christians. They draw us into relationships of reciprocity and responsibility.

    Covenants and their symbols are...

  • Our Cloud of Witnesses

    “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2a)

    We follow in the steps of many Christian Reformed...
