Let Justice Roll Down

In the prophetic books of the Bible, we hear a steady drumbeat:  return to God’s ways, remember who you are, seek justice.  The calls are persistent, and include harsh words of coming judgment.  Amos, whose name means "burden bearer", carried a message of warning to the Israelite people.

Let Justice Roll Down, commissioned by Mennonite Women Canada and Mennonite Women USA, is recommended for women’s gatherings, Sunday School classes, retreats, or individual reading and inspiration.  Twelve sessions examine the book of Amos, with topics that include the prophetic voice, the church’s witness in the world, consumption and generosity, and the relationship between worship and justice. 

Rebecca Seiling, writer of the Mennonite Women’s Bible Study, Let Justice Roll Down, has also written Plant a Seed of Peace and Don’t be Afraid, children’s books published by Herald Press. She has recently been hired by MennoMedia and Brethren Press as project developer for new Sunday School curriculum that will replace the Gather 'Round curriculum beginning in 2014. Rebecca and Derek Suderman live in Waterloo, Ont., and attend St. Jacobs Mennonite Church with their two daughters Zoe and Eden.
