Spiritual Focus: Bearing Witness in the Kin-dom: Living into the Church’s Moral Witness through Radical Discipleship

In Jesus’ own words, he came to bring good news to the poor, release the captives, restore sight to the blind, and to let the oppressed go free.
What is the responsibility of the church to follow Christ’s example in word and deed?
While these times might feel particularly turbulent, society has always confronted the church with challenging issues where she has had to discern how God was calling her. The church’s history in these moments is far from perfect. The purpose of this study is to help the church and its members discern our call and bear witness to the will of God for a more just world.
