In our class “Introduction to Social Justice” we have be looking at an old study series put out by Christianity Today, based on the life of William Wilberforce. Each week has an article about Wilberforce’s life accompanied by a scriptural study and discussion. We also watched the movie Amazing Grace.
All of us have become real fans of William Wilberforce. As folks who are heading into ministry it is hard to find a better human role model. His persistence, his varied interests, his winsome personality all sit as stirling examples of Christian virtues.
We also long to be world changers and this course has ignited a passion for lifelong dedication to justice rather than just us!
Seeing the excitement and being a part of the discussion is one of the highlights of my week. I wish you all could join in!
