ISAIAH 1.17 JUSTICE TEAM
WHO WE ARE
The Isaiah 1.17 Justice Team is a group of like-hearted, justice-believing faithful followers of God that seeks to fulfill the prophetic mandate of its namesake passage: to learn, to seek, to help, to defend, and to fight.
"Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan,
plead for the widow."
Isaiah 1.17 NRSV
WHAT WE DO
Our work of justice is a witness to the good news of Jesus. There is a power in this world bigger than the powers of racism, sexism, greed, sin, death, and all powers that devour our souls. This power of Christ is not destructive, but is love. It is greater than death. This power is challenging and makes us face hard truths, but it is a power rooted in love, grace, and mercy. This is the work we are about. This is God's work we are about.
