What would happen if we stopped doing justice, and started living justly?
LIVING JUSTLY > DOING JUSTICE
Doing Justicecan quickly devolve into a one-off experience that often is more about us than those we seek to serve. It is seeing those in need as people we are called to fix. ButLiving Justly is personal, it’s long-term, it’s partnership.Living Justlyis knowing that, server or served, we are all equally broken and crying out to God to fix us both.
The vision of Love Works, a ministry of Soul City Church, is to be at the forefront of an only-God movement that transforms the soul, the city of Chicago, and the world. It’s a grand vision, but what vision worth having isn’t? We educate, equip, and mobilize volunteers to work with our various partners (seriously, we know so many great organizations that are doing incredible work), and create our own initiatives, designed to treat people with grace and dignity.
