These links are to older issues that we followed as an office at one time, and also to issues that are of importance, but are not in the scope of the OSJ to follow at this time. We post them here for your information.
Guide us, God, so that ancient wrongs may be redressed, broken promises forgiven, and a new covenant forged.
The CRC in Canada has been ministering to the needs of urban Aboriginal people for almost 30 years, through first one, and then a second and third Aboriginal ministry centre in Winnipeg, Regina, and Edmonton respectively. We celebrate God's goodness in blessing these centres and we are thankful for the powerful impact they have in their communities. Learn more on the denominational website.
In the Christian Reformed community, we celebrate relationships of healing and encouragement between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and we lament those places where justice is not served. Click on the links below to learn more about this issue.
National Aboriginal Justice Day (Canada) is June 21.
The Christian Reformed Church was established in the United States and Canada by Dutch immigrants who brought with them a heritage that is still a deep-rooted part of our church community.
It is clear, however, that God's children are people of all races, colors, and cultures, and the CRC is actively striving to reflect the diversity of our world and among God's people.
Please visit the CRC's Office of Race Relations to learn more and connect with others in this important ministry.
Hot topic issues of life and death ethics - stem cell research, the death penalty - are not included in the mandate of the OSJ, which focuses mostly on a small set of justice issues that relate to root causes of poverty and hunger. However, because justice issues of life and death are, rightly so, of great importance to the CRC and broader church community, we have provided a few links here that we thought might be valuable resources.
