Lawrence Justice Network -- A group of Trinity members have been hosting small group gatherings in their homes to listen to concerns about problems in our community in hopes to address them at their root cause, to help make Lawrence a healthy and safe place for all people. Everyone is invited to the discussion, as all input is valued and will be counted. Information about this network of 19 other faith organizations using a proven structure to influence our community is being shared.
We know God requires us to do justice. Of the top 20 societal values featured in Biblical text, justice is second only to love. Please make justice a priority and accept this invitation. One of the team members will contact you soon. We have the chance to learn to live what Nehemiah did - to help change social ills by changing the cause of those injustices!
