There has been a lot of controversy lately on whether the Gospel is social justice or not. This is a continuation of positions stated in the 1987 Danvers Statement and the 2017 Nashville Statement. For your consideration, I have included a couple of articles that generally reflect the Episcopal Church’s position on the Gospel as social justice, as well as an alternative point of view, and two articles I have written about social justice. You may not agree with all the stated positions (I have some that I question), but we all should evaluate our stance on social justice and the Gospel, and what the members of the diocese will do in the future.

Is the Gospel Social Justice?
