To paraphrase Bonhoeffer, peace has nothing to do with comfort. Many times peace means that violence will come against you because it involves one, not only siding with the oppressed, but also “putting a spoke in the wheel of the oppressor.”

My question to you is this: What are the injustices that you see evident in our culture? I’m speaking particularly about the North American (read: Canada; read: Toronto). culture. Where do you see injustice? Where does injustice try and invade our lives?

As a follow-up question: What the hell are we doing about it? Ought the Church do something? Are we not called to speak prophetically to injustice?

Grace and peace.
