What does the Lord require of you but to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8b K.J. version (paraphrased)
Operating under the umbrella of the Session’s Mission and Outreach Committee, the Justice Committee’s purpose is to inform the congregation about justice issues of a global, national or local nature and, where applicable, to suggest avenues of possible action.

Why Have a Congregational Justice Committee?
Knowledge is power.
One person can make a difference.
Perhaps the most powerful reason can best be summed up by quoting Edmund Burke, the 18thcentury Irish statesman and philosopher:
“In order for evil to triumph, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing.”
