Quote of Note #129: Justice and Love for my Neighbors

Photo by GAC

“Love for neighbor requires critiquing and dismantling unjust systems of racial oppression. It is one matter to acknowledge that all people are made equal and have inherent dignity in their very being. It is another matter to identify the ways the image of God is defaced in groups of people through systems and policies and to work against these injustices. The emphasis here is on life together in a nation under laws and policies.”
