Bending Toward Justice, Becoming Allies
Rev. David Baak
Surrounded by evil and violence, we sometimes find it easier to close ranks with those just like us, rather than seeking peace and reconciliation for our world. Yet, we are reminded in our confession “that God has revealed God’s self as the one who wishes to bring about justice and true peace among people…and God calls the church to follow… standing by people in any form of suffering and need…" (Belhar Confession, 4.) This Sunday we look at Psalm 85 to help move us beyond despair or analysis toward the time when “justice and peace will kiss each other.” Rev. David Baak, preaching: “Bending Toward Justice, Becoming Allies.” Diane Helle, violin.
