Connecting Faith and Justice
As we have stated many times before, one amazing benefit of the United Methodist Church is the connectional system and nature of the church. There are 13 General Agencies, each tasked with challenging and supporting the local church in different ways. The General Board of Church and Society (or GBCS) is dedicated to the work of living faith, seeking justice, and pursuing peace. There are more than 30 social issues that the United Methodist Church has claimed a position in the Social Principles and other policy statement, and the GBCS helps address and advocate for those positions.
To that end, a diverse group of educators has created a curriculum that is designed to help students actively engage the intersection of faith and justice, and explore why our faith compels us toward justice. These educators were youth pastors, professors, elders, deacons, deaconesses, and missionaries from all over the globe. Each of them wants to support your youth in their faith development. And best of all, this curriculum is available to download today for free.
