Society," and the supporting scripture is Isaiah 65: 17 - 25 with a particular focus on verse 23 "...They won’t labor in vain, nor bear children to a world of horrors, because they will be people blessed by the LORD, they along with their descendants."

The Rev. Dr. Allan Boesak

"Unless the Cry is Heard, the City cannot Flourish."

"The city, the country, a people, flourish where there is justice, dignity and peace. Where injustice reigns, John Calvin says, a cry rises up. What we see in the streets of our cities today, from Oakland to Ferguson to Chicago, and from Soweto to Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, and in fact across the globe, is exactly that cry. It is a cry of outrage against injustice and oppression, but it is also a cry of hopeful defiance. God hears that cry, but does the church? Unless that cry is heard and justice is done, we will not flourish." .

Rev. Dr. Allan Boesak, Desmond Tutu Chair of Peace, Global Justice and Reconciliation Studies at Christian Theological Seminary
