A Kairos Moment: Change Is Coming Soon

Kairos is an ancient Greek term connoting time when old structures are breaking down and movements for change are breaking through, when there’s a decisive opportunity to achieve justice, peace and equality. In a moment of climate chaos, systemic racism and violence, poverty and inequality, militarism and war, and the rise of white Christian nationalism, possibilities for peace and justice seem far away. Yet our faith traditions insist that justice is possible and necessary and change is coming soon. In this Kairos moment, explore what the Bible and our faith traditions really say about poverty and justice and learn from examples of poor and low-income communities organizing for change.
