Becoming a Just Church

Justice often gets characterized as a project, something we go out in the world to do and check a box–but justice needs to first be about the kind of people we are rather than the actions that we do in the world. Adam Gustine, Assistant Director of Social Concerns Seminars, joins us on the podcast to discuss his book, “Becoming a Just Church, Cultivating Communities of God’s Shalom.” Adam shares how he defines the Hebrew word of shalom as wholeness, when nothing is missing and nothing is broken, and that the work of the Church is be an extension of wholeness to the world. As Adam says, Jesus didn’t spend his time with the movers and the shakers of society, he spent his time with people vulnerable to the storms of life. If the Church is to be the Body of Christ, then it ought to reflect Jesus’ priorities. Subscribe to the Signs of the Times Podcast in your podcast app and tune in to hear the whole story!
