"We as a nation proclaim to have rules of engagement- but our laws are not and have not been equally applied…
We create ridiculous rhetoric, mystical stereotypes, and revisionist history to justify discriminatory behavior toward select people groups which makes our unjust treatments even more egregious as it emboldens others to perpetuate and to perpetrate even more discriminatory beliefs and behaviors into our interrelated systems of existence."
-Dr. Barbara Fears taught us about Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and how we can mirror the way Christ taught.

weightier issues of faithfulness, mercy, and justice…
"I’ve seen the confusion of good morality and assuming that would satisfy God’s heart of reconciliation and justice.”

-President Ken Pruitt of The John Leland Center for Theological Studies in talking about the role of Christian Education in God's work of justice.

A question many have: “Isn’t ‘justice’ just a radical political agenda being placed on the biblical text?”
Rev. Dr. Rob Wallace walks us through how justice comes directly from the biblical text and the radical ideas found there.
