Source: (2001) Update: The Church Council on Justice and Corrections (Winter): 1-2.

At mid summer in 2001, the Church Council on Justice and Corrections (based in Ottawa, Ontario) held its Annual General Meeting to discuss God’s justice and religious reasons for punishment. Later that year the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, against targets in the United States, made the topic of that meeting exceedingly concrete and emotional for members of the Church Council. In this article, Rick Prashaw reflects on how such events bring into focus fundamental questions of good, evil, and God’s justice. He declares that, in the face of evil, Christians must proclaim a faith in justice as right relations with God, others, and creation. See
