Timothy Murphy on Sustaining Hope in an Unjust World

Where is God when we’re losing the fight?

In our faithful work toward building a better world, we may often feel we’re losing the battle. The poor get poorer, the vulnerable continue to be abused, and justice for all is a distant dream. No matter how hard we work, nothing changes. Some days, we wonder if God is even still with us in the fight.

But what happens, in our striving for social justice, when we discover that God offers us something entirely different than the promise of victory? In this love letter to the disheartened activist, pastor Timothy Murphy reflects on his own journey of disappointments and despair to rediscover a faith–and a God–who inspires us to continue fighting, even when it feels like we’re losing the battle.
