grace-oriented

How quickly we blame the victim of injustice, like the followers of Jesus in Luke 13:1-5.  In telling them to “repent,” literally to “turn,” he is urging them to re-orient their way of seeing the world. … We, too, must recognize the lies that blame the victims of poverty, and ask the question, “Who is really responsible for this injustice? And how can we together build the power to change injustice?
