March Benevolence: America for Christ This year’s theme—“Seek Justice,” based on Isaiah 1:17—is a biblical reminder that Jesus’ public ministry was about advocacy, engagement and compassion for people in need. Through the work of American Baptist Home Mission Societies, which is supported by the America for Christ Offering, we can participate with our Lord in seeking justice for those in our churches and neighborhoods. http://www.nationalministries.org/afc
