"If you want to do the work of Justice, find out what belongs to whom and give it back!"

 

Walter Bruggeman,

Hebrew Scripture Scholar

 

 

"Justice is what Love looks like in Public."

 

Cornell West,

 

 

 

“Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable. But justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not
to be charitable, people still don’t go hungry, unschooled or sick without care.

Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth;

justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance. 

 

Faith-based charity provides needed crumbs from the table.

Faith-based justice offers a place at the table.”

Bill Moyers
