Social justice is huge today as my generation seems to be more and more involved with different groups or starting their own.

Christians not only met physical needs, but most importantly the spiritual needs of the pagans providing them with hope and even enthusiasm for the future. Two epidemics were helpful in seeing that Christianity would not only survive but also thrive during these hard times. Christians didn’t back down from these epidemics, even when it meant certain death. Reading this, only encouraged me in my faith and I hope it encourages you as well.
