The Old Testament prophets spoke out and advocated for the needs of the poor and those who treated unjustly. Interestingly, most of these prophetic words were actually spoken in times of increasing prosperity. We are fortunate and blessed to live in a place where many of those reading these words have no shortage of food, clothing or shelter. We also are aware that deep needs exist today here in Canada and abroad, just as they did in the time of the biblical prophets.
From our inception the Covenant has been concerned with helping hurting people (love mercy), and addressing the causes of that hurt (do justice). From a biblically rooted perspective, we provide tangible ways of extending the love of Jesus in deed as well as work, and speak as an advocate. Through various ministries, we work to bring the love of Christ and the justice of God’s kingdom to the marginalized, the powerless, and the oppressed.
The ECCC is committed to love mercy and do justice as an ongoing priority. As such, we continue our Season of Hope during which we encourage every part of the ECCC to engage with one of our global networks: Kernels of Hope, partnerships in Haiti, the World Vision project in Jenin, Palestine and the Bible Society in Nazareth, Covenant Kids Congo, or our Covenant partnership in Ecuador.
