I remarked to someone today: "Social justice and righteousness sits uneasily with the Church." Or rather, with many Churches. I wrote a paper on that once, which was journal published -- specifically to seek a reconciliation of the two from a Protestant perspective -- however, note that this is academic writing, so it is not for the faint-hearted. I have a copy of the paper on this blog (click here):Reconciling the Personal and Social Dimensions of the Gospel. OBSERVATION: The photo is simply one that I had close to hand. Children playing in a township.
