Practicing Justice Globally

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-39

Walking towards justice with people around the world includes building relationships and joining efforts with other communities.
