Sunday Follow-up: Restorative Justice

On Sunday, February 2, 2014, Peter Sinclair continued our series, “Who Do You Say I Am?” from the Gospel of Mark with a message from Mark 4.41-5.20. You can listen to it on our current series page (or in the archives).

In his sermon, Peter touched on the topic of justice and our tendency to go the retributive route rather than God’s restorative way. Recognizing that this is a big topic, we thought we’d share some reading material on the blog.

First, “No Money in the Revenge Business” considers the connection of forgiveness and what we seek when we’ve been wronged.

Kurt talks about the counter-cultural way of Jesus and “Why the ‘Christian life’ isn’t worth living.

Finally, our denomination, the Christian Reformed Church of North America, shares a number of resources relating to restorative justice through its Office of Social Justice.


This post is a follow-up to a sermon preached by Peter Sinclair at Christ Community Church in Nanaimo, BC on February 2, 2014.
