What does justice mean? We believe that prayer needs to be more than just pretty words -- if we want healing in the world, we need to respond to God’s call for justice. Whether it is helping to build a library in a South African township, collecting food for the local food pantry, or helping neighbors in financial need, Messiah strives to embody the justice of Jesus’ beatitudes.
From the Catechism portion of the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer:
The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. The Church pursues its mission as it prays and worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love. The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members.
