One Response to Service vs. Justice

  1. Timothy Rothhaar April 29, 2011 at 11:07 am #

    I must confess that I completely disagree with this entire presentation. Service and justice are not separate: service is an *aspect* of justice and it has its place like anything else.

    For example, page 4 says that service often dehumanizes others. Yet, as Christians, why would we wish to do something that does such a thing over and over again? Did St. Vincent de Paul not SERVE others his entire saintly life?

    Service allows one to start small, because it never happens that something justice-related will become an overnight success. This presentation makes it sound like service is unnecessary since service takes place in a very small corner of the world with a seemingly low impact. As Margaret Mead has said, “A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
