Upcoming Radio Program on Social Justice

by Dan Cruver Published Dec 21, 2009

Seek Social Justice

This Wednesday (1:00 PM EST) on “Knowing the Truth” Kevin Boling and Ryan Messmore will be discussing social justice. Ryan is the William E. Simon fellow in Religion and a Free Society at The Heritage Foundation. If you are able, let me encourage you to listen to the program, whether live or by downloading the audio afterwards. Kevin’s interviews are always very informative. You will be able to listen online here.

Here’s the blog post announcing the program:

Hunger. Poverty. Sickness. Addiction. These problems are serious… and complex. Passion alone won’t solve them. We need effective strategies for overcoming human need.

Seek Social Justice is a small group guide from The Heritage Foundation that provides a framework for understanding the roots of social breakdown and what to do about it.

This six-lesson DVD explores the roles and responsibilities of family, business, government, church and individuals in promoting social justice by profiling real-world examples of effective action.

The accompanying study guide challenges notions that human need results primarily from a lack of resources that can be solved by greater government assistance, and instead guides participants through thoughtful, effective approaches to transform lives in need.

This written guide contains six lessons corresponding to six videos, available on the accompanying DVD or online at (the website will go live later this week)

Lesson One: Rethinking Social Justice: Getting to the Root of the Problem

Lesson Two: Cultivating Justice from the Ground Up: Marriage, Family, and Friendship

Lesson Three: Serving the Whole Person: Churches and Ministries

Lesson Four: Restoring Dignity and Purpose: The Importance of Work

Lesson Five: Maintaining the Social Conditions for Justice: The Role of Government

Lesson Six: Breaking Ground: What You Can Do To Seek Social Justice

On the program today, my guest will be the Lead Writer for the Seek Social Justice curriculum, Ryan Messmore. Ryan is the William E. Simon fellow in Religion and a Free Society at The Heritage Foundation.

You’re invited to join the conversation. Simply call 1.888.660.9535 (between 1-2:00pm EST).
