Justice. Mercy. Faith.

By The Christian Citizen

Spoken word essays from contributors of The Christian Citizen, author interviews, and conversation on issues pertaining to justice, mercy, and faith. Through The Christian Citizen, we seek to shape a mind among American Baptists and others on matters of public concern by providing a forum for diverse voices living and working at the intersection of faith and politics, discipleship and citizenship.
