Ross Lockhart writes in his article entitled “Peekaboo Jesus” the following statement, “My experience of the Emerging Spirit campaign is that most people shied away from engaging Jesus and opted instead for our other, safer ‘J Word’—Justice.” (Snider, Phil. The Hyphenateds: How Emergence Christianity is Re-Traditioning Mainline Practices. Chalice Press. 2011, page 100)
So my question of the week is, Which do you use more—Jesus or Justice?
