Biblical Justice Initiatives

At South Highland, we believe the Scriptures are our ultimate authority in all spheres of life. And when we read God’s Word, we discover a God whose heart is unrelentingly committed to justice. We meet a God who again and again expresses concern and care for the poor, the widow, the alien, and the orphan—the most vulnerable members of our society. 

We believe God’s vision of justice and human flourishing presented in the Bible is far richer and more comprehensive than anything a political party or ideology could dream up. That’s why we’re committed to pursuing biblical justice with confidence, courage, and hope.

In 2020, our Elders voted unanimously to join the PC(USA)’s Matthew 25 Initiative. The Matthew 25 Vision calls us to be actively engaged in the world around us. Our initiative will focus on two goals: (1) dismantling structural racism and (2) eradicating systemic poverty.

To learn more about this initiative or to become a Matthew 25 ambassador, contact Laura Chapman.

More information coming soon.

Social Justice Book Club

The Social Justice Book Club’s next book discussion will be about a former Death Row inmate who was exonerated after spending decades in Alabama’s Holman Prison for a crime he did not commit. Anthony Ray Hinton’s The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row is a testament to the power of hope through the darkest times. John Heiser will lead the discussion. You need not have read the book to join the discussion on this important topic.

Next meeting: May 5, 2024 (check the Events Calendar for meeting details)
