Sunday Service: What is Justice?

Justice is about what is right and what is wrong in the world. Some people disagree with the idea of justice, or social justice and malign it as forced redistribution. Other people, like me, think that justice is a basic right of humanity that all people should be striving to accomplish. We have begun an ongoing conversation about justice in my church. I will be updating this post with links and more pieces of the conversation as it progresses. Please add your thoughts on justice in the comments, and participate in the conversation.

Part Two: Justice, Blind Justice and “God Damned” Social Justice, March 27, 2011 sermon by Rev. Lyn Stangland-Cameron

Future things we discuss will include:

  • causation of problems of social justice
  • the limits to solving social justice problems
  • the virtues, or not, of central planning
  • the relationship between capitalism, democracy, and social justice
  • success without money and why it is not celebrated in the United States
