Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

Columbia Union Conference

For the past year, pastors, such as Daniel Royo of the Piney Forest church in Danville, Va., along with teachers and staff, have been discussing what social justice means from a biblical perspective.

For many, social justice is a volatile subject. Some feel the time for open and honest, even painful, discussion has not yet arrived. As followers of Christ, our privilege is to create an environment where we can discuss and live out a biblical perspective of justice. As theologian Russell D. Moore says, “The gospel drives us to an understanding that the ultimate accounting of justice doesn’t rest with the state, or with ourselves, but with the Judgment Seat of the kingdom of God.”
