Staying in the Current

Staying in the Current

Passage: Amos 5:21-24

Speaker: Jim Barnette

Keywords: amos, current, justice, poor, raw, vulnerable, marginilized

To be the church we are called to be, Brookwood needs to stay in the flow of working towards justice for the poor and marginalized.

21 I hate, I despise your festivals,
    and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
22 Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
    I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
    I will not look upon.
23 Take away from me the noise of your songs;
    I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
24 But let justice roll down like waters,
    and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
