Day of Justice - The CRC annual day for Day of Justice is August 16. Join us to reflect on our world and the events of 2020 with text from Habakkuk 1. The impacts of racism, COVID-19, poverty, disease, and natural disasters… seem overwhelming and we, like David in Psalm 13 and Habbakkuk, ask, “How Long?” For resources including a litany, prayer, and reflection, go to crcna.org/dayofjustice.
