Responding to Humanitarian Emergencies and Global Issues

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.”

Bryan Stevenson

Every person is made in the image of God, with equal value, rights, and potential.

We are to live as citizens of God’s Kingdom, which exhibits wholeness, right relationships and stewardship of all of God’s creation, mindful of the generations to come.

When these truths are distorted and humanity lives disconnected from God, each other and creation, various expressions of injustice result, including conflict, discrimination, oppression, and over-consumption.

 

Stunning progress has been made in the past generation on many fronts, including cutting extreme poverty and child mortality in half. Serious challenges still remain, including significant levels of inequality, and future progress is not inevitable.

We are a connected, global community. Here we highlight just a handful of the global challenges we’re facing today, with faith that layers of individual and collective response will make a positive difference as we pray and act for “thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven”.

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbour to
the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
Luke 10:25-37

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Luke 5:9

And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
Amos 5:24
