Seek Justice

"Seeking justice in the everyday, though, is not something we do alone. As the Talmud, a collection of rabbinic writings, said, 'It is not upon you to complete the task, but you are not free to idle from it.' We are responsible to act, but it is not up to us to complete the task, so we shouldn't feel overwhelmed or pressured or guilty. The fate of the world doesn't rest on our shoulders. We are simply trying to follow Jesus and, for that, we have been promised aid."
