It was helpful to see how God’s heart for justice started from Genesis. So often we talk about “the beginning” as the fall, but there is a significant time before that where we see God’s heart and vision for justice that is easily overlooked. Seeing how God created the world intending for it to be a just and right society was a helpful framework to start with.

Shalom and a Just Society

Beginning with the beauty and goodness set forth at Creation and the brokenness brought forth in the Fall, the first installment of this series looks at God’s continued pursuit of wholeness and shalom for God’s people, even as God’s people continue to look to idols, kings, and their own strength for their salvation. 

From Levitical laws and the Exodus, to the lives of Samson, Daniel, Ruth, Esther, and the first of Israel’s kings, “Shalom and a Just Society” shows us God’s unchanging vision for shalom. Over the course of this 28-day journey, your community will clearly see the truth of how idolatry in one heart leads to injustice for a whole community, while faithful choices in one life leads to flourishing for generations.
