Since you’ve shown interest in our Restorative Justice resources, I thought you might also be interested in this resource we shared with some other folks. It’s a Bible study called, Where Love & Justice Meet; in it, you can explore these two powerful concepts and their meaning in our world.
[First name], This study delves into the unique ways that justice and love originate in and from God, especially through the cross and sacrifice of Jesus. From the perspective of Jesus’s crucifixion, it is an invitation to reflect on the meaning of justice and love in our society – in the specific context of victims and offenders, and the broader quest for the hope and healing our world craves now.

This Bible study examines scripture focused on:
- Justice as a part of God’s character
- Love as part of God’s character
- The Cross as the uniting of justice and love
- Justice and Love for the hurting
- Justice and love for those who have injured
- How communities can live out justice and love
Each lesson begins with Scripture and a brief reflection, and ends with questions that prompt contemplation. We hope these questions invite and encourage deeper conversations with friends and family when discussions come up about justice in our time.
Whether you seek a daily devotional for your faith journey, your family, or for a church group you belong to, or if you need a resource for prison ministry, Where Love & Justice Meet can provide a renewed understanding of how they are both integral to God’s redemptive work in the world.
I hope it’s a blessing to you,
