BlogFam, I do realize that it has been a few days since I last posted but as I hope you do recall, my commitment is to post at least 3-5 days per week so prayerfully I will post today, Friday, and Saturday to meet my commitment’s bare minimum for this week. J  THANK YOU so much for reading or listening to the Salvation and Stilettos Blog,for subscribing, and for sharing it with others.  I truly do see this as a part of my own ministry in the kingdom so it means a lot to me that YOU would take the time to support by doing all of the above.  So,THANK YOU!!!
BlogFam, Consider these Quotes:
The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., A Testament of Hope
It’s every man’s business to see justice done.
SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
The just man is not the product of a day, but of along brooding and a painful birth. To become a power for peace, a man must first pass through experiences which lead him to see things in their different aspects: it is necessary that he have a wide horizon, and breathe various atmospheres--in a word, from crossing, one after another, paths and points of view the most diverse, and sometimes the most contradictory, he must acquire the faculty of putting himself in the place of others and appreciating them.
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
Law is not law, if it violates the principles of eternal justice.
LYDIA MARIA CHILD, speech, 1861
The greatest trespasser on justice still wishes it done to him.
“No person is your friend (or kin) who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow and be perceived as fully blossomed as you were intended.”
On today, we begin a NEW Blog Series.  I have actually been pondering this very subject for about one month now.  As one of my birthday celebration activities, my sister and I visited the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN.  I cannot fully explain to you the thoughts and the feelings I had and that I have anytime I am reminded about what the generations did before us in order to fight for the freedoms we experience today. And while we have indeed come a mighty long way, I do recognize and realize that liberty and justice for all is still an ideal that has not yet been fully apprehended by all people groups in the United States of America or in the entire world.  So, when I visit these kinds of exhibits that remind me of what my people have been through so that I do not have to sit at the back of the bus, so that I can vote, so that I can walk through the front door of my local grocery store or movie theatre without going through a side entrance, I am so deeply grateful, yet I am also overwhelmed by this feeling that I must do something to continue this fight.  I admit that there have been times when I have felt like I did not know where to begin or how to get involved or as if I was not knowledgeable enough regarding the issues.  But, today I know that YOU and I can begin exactly where we are, with what we do know, and what we already have.  Today, I begin again in this space by simply using my gift to write in order to help those who read consider and re-consider what it means to live out the ideal that liberty and justice is for ALL people.
Some years ago there was a popular quick phrase that Christians began to say and wear on bracelets and T-shirts everywhere – W.W.J.D.= WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?  This simple question was a reminder to all of us who believe in the teachings of Jesus to maintain our witness as followers of Jesus Christ by answering that question through our words and actions by saying and doing exactly what Jesus would do in every situation.  Well, after my visit to the National Civil Rights Museum, I thought about that question again and again.  What Would Jesus Do TODAY? And in my musings, as a believer, that question will always be relevant to me.  However, I do realize that in this pluralistic society, it just may not resonate with all people so I believe that the universal question that needs to be asked is this: W.W.J.D. = WHAT WOULD JUSTICE DO?  Now, as for me, Jesus and Justice go hand in hand so throughout the series, my references to Scripture will still embody my Christian perspective.  But for my sisters and brothers and fellow world citizens who may ascribe to a different religious worldview, I believe that this question points to an ideal that all people, regardless of any of the things we use to separate or divide us, can more readily appreciate and consider.  WHAT WOULD JUSTICE DO?
I am not here to tell you exactly what political party you should be a part of or what your stance should be on the hot button issues or how you should vote in this upcoming election – those are personal and private matters; however, in your considerations, wherever you may fall, I pray that your social and political actions reflect a thoughtful consideration of JUSTICE for all people.  I hope that as you listen to the candidates – from your local city council person to your state representative in Washington, D.C. – that you would align yourself with JUSTICE.  I hope that as you engage in friendly debate via FaceBook or Twitter, that you like statuses and Re-Tweet statements that reflect JUSTICE.  It is none of my business who or what specific issues you most closely follow in the political commentary via television, radio, or Internet except to say that I hope that your ears are sensitive to listen for the JUSTICE in all things. 
As with all of our series, I am not sure how long this one will last, but I do know that the struggle for JUSTICE for all people,the question WHAT WOULD JUSTICE DO is the question of all ages.  Friends, I invite you to please join me as we reflect on what it means to answer this question in our own lives and as advocates for those whose voices we may not hear and whose faces we may never see.
My foundational scripture for this series is one that we have considered in the past but are re-considering presently because it answers our question at the most basic levels, Luke 4:16-22a
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.
