Equality vs. Equity

In a sermon on June 14, 2020, Pastor Bobby helped us understand justice as “meeting needs through practical deeds.” Oftentimes in Scripture, justice is restorative and is accomplished by giving people what they need. This doesn’t mean giving everyone the same thing. We often think that equality is the way to bring about justice, but we confuse equality with equity.

In this video from our denomination, Converge, the Vice President of Biblical Diversity, Dr. Harold Lewis, helps us understand the difference between equality and equity.
