THE BOOK OF AMOS

Seek God by seeking good. This is the command the book of Amos begs be understood. Uniquely among the minor prophets, Amos zeros in on Israel's injustice towards the poor. He indicts them for their failure to be generous as God had been generous to them. The good news of the book of Amos is that Jesus will free his people, bring us into his kingdom, and make us our own. What if we saw the world as God sees it, and the things that break the heart of God break our hearts? And what if God was to use us to give people just a glimpse of the world to come in the name of Jesus?

Join us each Sunday this summer, as we attempt to grow in understanding what justice is though the book of Amos and live into one of our five practices - restoring the world around us.

"Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is."
Amos 5:14
