Fields of Justice: is the official blog of the IAYM Christian Social Concerns Committee. Our monthly blog aims to be a source of devotions, education, and other resources for local churches seeking to make an impact on their communities and world.

Our theme for the year is “Loving our Captive Neighbor”
Our theme verses of year are Isaiah 58: 6-9:

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.
