That is a great question. There are so many important issues out there that we can’t focus on them all. Our focus is set by Synod, which is also where the deliberation over the issues occurs. Synod has, in recent years, assigned specific work for the Office of Social Justice (OSJ) to do on its primary focus issues: climate, immigration, religious persecution, abortion, and restorative justice. Work on other issues stems from the calling that brought the OSJ to life: addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty. A fuller answer to this can be found at justice.crcna.org/about/faq.
