What must be our response to the poverty, racism, and social injustice that surrounds us in our country? Associate Professor of Urban Studies and Politics and International Relations Dr. Noah Toly issues a call for increased awareness from Wheaton students and others. Calling 2014 the “Year of Outrage,” Dr. Toly cites numerous examples of social evils from this past year and calls out social structures that favor success from majorities and oppress minorities. He shows how, through baptism, Jesus Christ modeled solidarity by identifying with a broken, needy people, and draws a lesson from this: Christians must claim both solidarity with the Savior and solidarity with a troubled world if they are to be faithful in their witness and calling.
