Systemic injustice is much more difficult to recognize than overt acts of racism, making it a much more difficult problem to address. Studies have shown that social institutions—such as schools, judicial systems, banks, and government organizations—give unfair treatment to people based on race or class. Over time, this has led to unequal opportunities for people of color and hindered the growth of their communities. This bulletin insert highlights the work of Self-Development of People as it helps people establish new lives after prison.
In Isaiah 58, God issues a call and a challenge—to love one another more deeply by sharing what we have with those in need. One Great Hour of Sharing is our direct response to the ways in which God has called us to share.
