Jess: To work for justice in a fallen world can seem so huge a task that it's overwhelming to even consider an attempt. Where to begin? I love this quote from Houselander because it suggests that we begin in the most basic and accessible way, by seeking justice for those we know and see every day. It is our most commonplace actions with our neighbors that will bring about what Houselander beautifully called the Christing of the world.
Amy: I love this idea of the Christing of the world. Justice should not be thought of as a one-way street, in which privileged people offer what they have to those less fortunate. We are all sinners. We are all broken. Instead we should think of justice as coming through mutual acts of poverty, in which Christ is the only true gift given and received.
