I believe we are created to learn. As Christians, we learn to be more and more like Jesus. We learn by reading God’s word, interacting with others and studying the things that matter most to God. One of the things God cares about most is justice. Here are three ways to learn more about justice.
Learn more at the Celebration of Justice Conference
Grace Christian University’s School of Social Sciences and Human Services is hosting its 3rd annual Celebration of Justice conference. The conference takes place this Thursday and Friday, March 28-29, in Grand Rapids Michigan. The conference examines the Biblical foundations of justice, organizing for justice, and how to live that out in justice community. I am one of the keynote speakers and will be serving on two panels. I would love to see you at the conference. One of the best ways to learn is in community with others as we explore new ideas and are challenged to take action.
Learn More at the Restore Conference
If you can’t make it to Grand Rapids consider joining us in Elgin for our 3rd annual Restore Conference at Judson University on June 7-8. Elgin is close to O’Hare airport and is easily accessible by train, bus and car.
The Restore Conference combines worship with inspirational speakers and practical workshops. Explore justice with affinity groups, meet practitioners doing legal ministry for vulnerable neighbors and learn practical skills for any ministry. Our workshops range from deepening impact through cultural competency to understanding how to have life-changing impact through legal ministry. Explore immigration issues from an immigration expert or learn key ingredients to lead from author and successful business leader, Joe Slawek. Visit our site to learn more and then encourage your friends to come with you.
Our pre-conference on Friday, June 7 is designed for those doing or wanting to learn more about legal ministry. Judith Miller will inspire from the main stage, a panel of practitioners will share best practices, and there will be testimony, worship and practical workshops.
The main conference is for anyone interested in gospel justice. The conference opens Friday evening with worship, Dr. Soong Chan Rah and myself. Saturday has an optional go and see legal ministry opportunity, affinity groups, worship, workshops, special lunch and inspirational messages from Gracie Travis-Murphee and Alvin Bibbs. The conference is an ideal way to learn more about God’s heart for justice and how that can be applied in practical ways. This is a perfect conference to bring a small group to. Pick up any of Dr. Rah’s books, my book, Gracie’s book or Alvin’s book. They are all practical ways to learn more about justice.
