*Postponed* DEMYSTIFYING JUSTICE FOR DEACONS AND CHURCHES Workshop
Classis BC South East & BC North West
Thursday, June 9, 7-9pm PDT via Zoom
The biblical call to do justice is something that we as Christians strive to live out. However, in a world with so much injustice, where is a person (or a church) to start?! We can get easily overwhelmed when trying to address too much at once, when programs are vague and unsustainable, or when issues are so complex that it seems like our efforts are merely ‘a drop in the bucket’.
Join Rachel Vroege from Diaconal Ministries Canada and Cindy Stover from the CRCNA's Justice & Reconciliation team for this interactive workshop that will help you to demystify justice!
We will unpack how the bible talks about peace, justice and mercy, identify how exploitive structures cause injustice, and explore how advocacy reconciliation can bring change and healing when injustice has been done. We will conclude with open discussions on the assets that are already in your local communities that you can build on to develop your own action plans, embodying the call to be peacemakers and doers of justice.
REGISTER BY Tuesday, June 7. **Invite your entire deacon team to participate!**
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting by zoom. If you have any questions or if we can be of help in any other way, feel free to contact us.
We hope you will encourage many on your deacon team to participate. If you have any questions or if we can be of help in any other way, feel free to contact us.
