Week 5: Advocacy and Action – Discipleship Guide

Week 5: Advocacy and Action – Discipleship Guide

“The role of advocacy and taking action for justice.”

Scripture: Proverbs 31:8-9 - "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice."

Rev. Stacy Rector was our guest this week. Rev. Rector is the executive director of Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (https://tennesseedeathpenalty.org/).


  1. What is your understanding of how your own faith intersects with works of justice and advocacy?

  2. This week, we are focusing on Proverbs 31:8-9, which says, "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” As you reflect on this text, what does it mean for you to “speak up for the poor and helpless” to ensure that they get justice?

  3. What is the role of the church and the churchgoer in the work of justice?

  4. Have you supported any grassroots organizations leading the way with justice work?

  5. How can the church do better at the work of justice in this world? How about you personally?
