It was not by accident that we chose “Faith & Justice” as the first topic to explore in BNG’s Storytelling Projects initiative. Issues related to justice lie at the forefront of contemporary faith and constitute ministry priorities for many faith communities.
In a 1967 address to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Martin Luther King Jr., exhorted people of faith to “realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
In Faith & Justice, we tell the compelling stories of the people and organizations that are helping to bend the “arc of the moral universe” toward justice and, in so doing, are transforming the communities where they live.
QC Family Tree, founded by Greg and Helms Jarrell, is an intentional Christian community forming relationships and seeking justice alongside residents of the Enderly Park neighborhood of Charlotte, N.C.
