No Justice, No Peace
Ever since its first appearance during the civil rights movement in the 1960s, the slogan “no justice, no peace” has become a staple of civil protest. People of faith don’t always connect justice and peace, yet throughout Scripture, we see that God intensely loves the people whom society puts on the margins, and is consumed with correcting injustices against them. A former refugee from Myanmar, who spent years in a military prison and went on a hunger strike just to have his Bible, taught a valuable lesson about peace that convinced Jessica the slogan is true: if we want peace, we must begin with justice.
