January wish lists are popular. Most are personal. Goal setting is fine, but better is asking God to show us His wish list. Think nationally. God’s wants each to experience justice. Justice for all: poor, voiceless as well as those who can afford it and have voices of influence.
Currently we fall short of God’s standard. I applaud an inner city church in Chicago that has stepped up. Folks languishing in our prison for long periods of time unnecessarily, because they have no money to post bail, and they are no flight risk, have been bonded out and are receiving skill training. Mostly young men of color, they are embraced with practical support and mentoring.
Now that’s the body of Christ in action.
