Jud shares the following introduction to his article:

“Hello — Here we are post-election and before the holiday season. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed this striking juxtaposition— discord and hope. I’ve added a post that hopefully will ignite further reflection.

If you read this post, please make sure you listen to the song as well—it’s soulful. We are living in troubled times and need the encouragement of one another. There is a crack in everything and I guess That’s How the Light Gets In.

Peace on Earth & Good Will to All.”

Jud Dolphin Asks “What About God’s Justice?”

jud green borderJud Dolphin recently shared with us his article which was published in this month’s issue of Лице в Лице, the street magazine for his current NGO. In this piece about social justice worldwide, he asks the question — “What about God’s justice?” Jud reflects on his experiences in the US as well as his current work in Macedonia.

It’s election year in both countries, so he shares his thoughts on candidates’ promises, partial justice, Utopian agendas, the need to remain positive and not dwell on the negative, and the tension between the ideals of justice and political reality.

What About God’s Justice? is a timely and compelling article.
