Human trafficking is really important to talk about on here, but even more so it is this: OUR GOD IS A GOD OF JUSTICE AND MERCY. The spectrum of justice does vary, and we don't all have the same role—which is why I like this conversation so much. As Naomi points out, it is not only what we DO, but what we DON’T do that can be just as important.
Back to Basics: Why do you think our participation in justice matters to God?
How would you encourage us to get our hands dirty / boots on the ground and participate where we can?
You have a social enterprise. Can you explain what that is?
