Collaborative Justice and Mercy
How do we love our neighbor in our fast paced, disconnected, polarized, and technological world? Our neighbor the widow, orphan, incarcerated, immigrant, hungry, homeless, elderly, ill, and poor. How do we do it with love and mercy that is rooted in justice? How would we know if we are truly loving them and doing it effectively? Most efforts to solve today's problems operate in silos disconnected from one another. They are not working together to show the love, mercy, and justice of God.
Praxis Connections creates impact by connecting leaders, strategies, and resources that incorporates a theory & methodology of change we call Collaborative Justice & Mercy. Collaborative Justice & Mercy is rooted in the biblical values of Micah 6:8 and Matthew 25:31-46 and envelopes the following:
1) Shared Vision/Mission
2) Aligned Action
3) Shared Knowledge
4) Empowered Execution
5) Shared Metrics
6) Models & Mobilization of Resources
Collaborative Justice & Mercy flow out of a shared love of Christ, neighbor, neighborhood, and action.
