Introduction

God desires the needs of the marginalised to be met, and here at The Salvation Army, we know the best response to hardship and injustice is the kingdom of God. One of our Mission Intentions is Working for Justice and it is at the core of all we do. God wants everyone to experience a life that is free from oppression, abuse, addiction, and injustice.

B.     Challenging systems of injustice

  • This woman’s life was restricted because of systems and customs.
  • The woman’s life was changed because she reached out to Jesus.
  • Living out the Gospel calls us to challenge structures and customs that oppress.
