Justice Rolls Down

The Bible’s many words on justice
April 7 – May 12, 2013

God’s command that we work for justice is persistent throughout the entire Bible; it is an unavoidable call placed on all of God’s people. In this series, we’ll look at this call as it is presented in each major movement of scripture, exploring ways to live out one of Artisan’s foundational values and “let justice roll down like waters” (Amos 5:24)!
