Mission: People of faith building power to “do justice”

Vision for Doing Justice: 

Most congregations are very good at pursuing the humble walk with God and they are often strong at demonstrating kindness (or mercy). But when it comes to doing justice, most of those same congregations fall significantly short. One of the primary reasons for this shortcoming is that a single member, pastor or congregation does not have enough power to hold key decision makers accountable for protecting the weak from the strong. BREAD provides a vehicle for congregations to practice justice by joining together large numbers of people. These large numbers of people give us a chance to "do justice." Since congregations gather weekly (52 times a year) to remind themselves of their humble walk with God, we challenge them to gather that same number of people once a year to take action and "do justice" at the Nehemiah Action Assembly (52/1).
