Just Worship explores the deep connection between worship and justice. This 33-minute film urges the church to answer God’s call to work for justice, reveals how taking part in worship is part of doing justice, and encourages the church to enact Spirit-filled worship that welcomes the coming reign of God. The documentary offered here shares highlights from the Just Worship conference in Austin, Texas.
