Belhar and Accra: Confessing and embodying compassionate justice – by Nico Koopman | Ecclesio.com

Belhar and Accra: Confessing and embodying compassionate justice – by Nico Koopman | Ecclesio.com | THINKING PRESBYTERIAN | Scoop.it

The logic of the Confession of Belhar and of the Accra Confession entail that justice discourses take place in interwovenness with reconciliation and unity discourses.


1.The justice that is confessed in The Confession of Belhar 1986, and in the Accra Confession is rightly described as compassionate justice. In line with the biblical use of these concepts, both the sacrificial (tsedakah) and forensic (mishpat) dimensions of justice are being referred to. Both these meanings of justice are expressed in words like dikaiosune and other words with the dike root in the New Testament.

That’s where Nick Warnes, an ordained teaching elder, and his wife, Whitney Warnes, found themselves as members of Glendale Presbyterian Church, just north of Los Angeles. In seeking God’s will for their lives, they sensed that God was calling them to create space for reconciling relationships in northeastern Los Angeles.
