Taking It Home
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. — Archbishop Desmond Tutu
It is easier to name situations where we were treated unfairly than it is to be aware of situations when we acted unfairly. Engage family members or trusted friends in a conversation about how we determine what is fair and unfair in our families, communities, and the world. Can you identify times when you were given or when you took more than a fair share of goods or privileges? Who or what has acted as prophet in your life to help you perceive unfairness? Have you changed your behavior as a result?
