Back Collar Verse: 
Isaiah 58:6-12 “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?...”

When Maggie thinks about what it looks and feels like to do justice work, she’s reminded of words from Isaiah 58:6-12. Verse 6 speaks to her specifically, listing what we are called to do and be in the world. She writes, “We are called to loosen the bonds of injustice, whatever they may be. In doing so, God's light breaks through the darkness of this world.” Maggie recognizes justice work is difficult; however, verse 11 gives her courage. It reads, “The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places…you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.”
