As we launched our new Social Justice category, we wanted to know whether your church puts a priority on social justice. Here’s the breakdown of what you had to say:
31% of your churches are hit or miss. Some things you emphasize and others you don’t. Maybe you drink fair trade coffee but all drive Hummers. There are just some issues that don’t resonate with your church.
And slightly less of you, 30%, say your church only has a few issues it emphasizes. Of those of you, what issues seem to be favorites for churches?
17% of your churches are all about the gospel justice, not the social justice. Hey, people need both, so keep bringing that gospel message.
16% of you hit social justice issues most of the time, but not quite always. Are there certain issues you stay away from, or you just can’t quite get to all of them?
The final group is the 7% of you who are social justice junkies. If someone shows up in a Hummer without information about the child they sponsor, it’s straight to the altar for some laying-on of hands. This is the small, but (probably) vocal minority.
This week, we’re looking to find out would you attend a Local Lab meet-up in your area?
