Love Our Neighbor │ Justice, Advocacy, Campus Ministry
Social Justice is how we proclaim the good news of Christ for all of creation. At UniLu, it includes volunteering, stewardship, in-gathering, knitting, cooking, serving, prayer, and service on boards of directors - ways we encounter God in the world around us as we seek to bring about the promised Reign of God.
