The Common Good

Racial and Social Justice

God loves justice and shows special concern for the poor and vulnerable. Recognizing the image of God in all people, we seek to increase opportunities for all people to access the resources they need to live in sufficiency and dignity, rather than scarcity and oppression. Sin and injustice cripple the image of God in human beings; salvation and justice restore it.
