Compassion, Justice and Advent
by Al Tizon
As Advent 2012 is upon us, let me encourage you to visit Christine Sine's Godspace for teaching, meditations, and resources to celebrate the coming of Jesus with compassion, justice, and spirituality. I also found A Social Justice Advent Guide for Families, a resource of the North Carolina Council of Churches, to be very helpful as it guides us to observe Advent through the eyes of justice. After all, Christ came to "preach the good news to the poor; to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to let the oppressed go free; and to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor" (Luke 4:18-19). Right?
