July 6, 2018 (Amos 8:4-6, 9-12)

The Amos story continues as we hear what Amos was sent North to speak. He speaks against the greed of the people of the Northern Kingdom. Justice and fairness have disappeared from everyday life. Everything is done in the name of making a profit. The “anawim,” the widow, the orphan, and the sojourner, those who can’t take care of themselves are being exploited. Does this sound familiar?
