Racial Justice Sunday 2022

Racial Justice: What’s it got to do with me? — the theme for the event on 13 February 2022

Racial Justice Sunday (RJS) is a call for all Christians to engage in the righteous struggle for racial justice because racial justice is everyone’s business.

New resources, provided by our colleagues at Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, contain a range of materials that will enable churches and congregations to carry out an act of worship or a service focusing on racial justice. The second part of the resources provides groups and individuals with information, ideas and activities that enable them to continue the conversations that may emanate from RJS.

All churches are encouraged to focus on the 3 Rs of ‘Remembering’, ‘Reflecting’ and ‘Responding’:

  • Remembering the importance of racial justice.
  • Reflecting on human diversity and thanking God for it.
  • Responding by working to end injustice, racism and ignorance through
    prayer and action.

CTBI’s Director of Justice and Inclusion, Richard Reddie, says “…the Bible has a lot to say about justice because as God’s Word, it reflects God’s heart for justice. It can be argued that we should love justice because God does! Racism and racial discrimination are justice issues because they deny basic justice and human dignity to women and men who are made in the image of God. Equally, they are sinful because, among other issues, they assume all are not equal before God and are not part of God’s family.”
