Day 28 with the Belhar

We believe … that in following Christ the church must witness against all the powerful and privileged who selfishly seek their own interests and thus control and harm others.
— from the Belhar Confession

God has taken his place in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
“How long will you judge unjustly
and show partiality to the wicked?Selah
Give justice to the weak and the orphan;
maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

They have neither knowledge nor understanding,
they walk around in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
— Psalm 82:1-5 (NRSV)
