The motto “What Would Jesus Do?” was coined by a writer in the Social Gospel tradition, a 20th century movement that sought to apply the teachings of Biblical Christianity to contemporary social problems such as poverty, addiction, inequality, exploitation, and war. Unitarians and Universalists were a part of it from the beginning, and it has shaped our approach to social justice in interesting ways.
