Jesus’ Curious View of Justice
Pre-recorded breakout session workshops
Mike McLaughlin, MDiv
Western Regional Director, CMDA
Michael has served as the CMDA western regional director for the past 36 years, overseeing the CMDA campus and community ministry in 15 western states. CMDA ministry happens in the west largely because of the ~200 volunteers on 70 campuses and among the 3,000 western CMDA members. He lives in Portland with his wife Linda of 46 years. They have two adult married children and four grandchildren who all live in Oregon.
Are you committed to Justice? How much has your view of Justice been shaped by western culture? Can you articulate the difference between "western Justice" and the "justice" mentioned ~400 times in the Old Testament? Jesus grew up with an Old Testament view of Justice directed at the "quartet of the vulnerable" and lived his life accordingly. We can learn to do what he did.
(not a book) - I recommend The Bible Project podcasts on this topic and others.
