Many of these people are now relatively famous for their achievements. Rather than indulge in hero worship, I think its better to reflect on how their example can inspire and challenge us. How can we put our beliefs into action to make a difference in the world?

How do we confront inequality and injustice and express Christ’s hope and compassion towards the poor? And how can our social activism remain connected to our faith? Join us as we reflect on what it looks like to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.
