"But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" Amos 5:24
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 group gathers on the 4th Mondays, of every month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the North Oak Campus Email Nikki Kramer for details: [email protected].
