Getting to the Root of It
As part of our monthly Justice and Peace Action Network newsletter, we asked members of our staff to help us unpack the complex justice issues that we’re working on. Using our General Synod pronouncements as the basis for these reflections, we hope to provide insights into the issues you care about that are rooted in our shared faith, and can inform your advocacy efforts.
