On September 16th, Tim Reardon led a reflection on James 1:1-12 — emphasizing that justice cannot be seen as separate from the cross. James talks about a double minded person as one who wants to hear the gospel but not do it.
Tim reminds us that the cross is a revelation of injustice. The cross of Jesus, the innocent one, who was executed, who calls into question our social, economic and justice systems — calls into question all forms of injustice. It is a revelation of God’s solidarity with the poor and those disenfranchised, and a call to repentance for those who are powerful and unjust.
