Amos 5:24
"But let justice roll on like a river, 
righteousness like a never-failing stream!"

United Methodists have a rich history and concern for social justice. Inspired by Jesus’s ministry to the poor and marginalized, we continue the work of John Wesley, our founder, who advocated for issues such as prison reform, human rights, the end of slavery, labor justice and the humane treatment of animals.

Good Shepherd believes that, as people of faith, God calls us to fully love and care for humanity and resist the act of marginalization wherever it is present. The Good Shepherd Justice Team works to dismantle systems of injustice by focusing on improving race relations and LGBTQ+ inclusion. The team meets regularly to explore our own biases, ways these biases can be dismantled and create spaces to partner with others in this transformative work.

The Good Shepherd Justice Ministry is affiliated with the Reconciling Ministries Network and as such, we live into and affirm this statement:

We, the Good Shepherd Justice Ministry Team in Kansas City, Missouri, celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
