God’s Kingdom is marked by justice. Wrongs are made right wherever and whenever his will is done. Yet we all have basic assumptions about what is right and how to go about welcoming his activity in our lives and communities. In “Justice Flow” we will explore 8 essential movements that just communities embrace. These 8 shifts in thinking and practice are critical as we walk faithfully and effectively with the marginalized in our societies, cultures and economies. These movements, like a river, are always flowing – always inviting us to jump in. We can stand on the banks, or we can jump in and let the current of God’s Kingdom take us to new places as we join him in his restorative work.
This event will be filmed and used as the basis for a new Vineyard Institute course on justice. Footage will also be used in new Vineyard Canada material. However, we’re not content with the “talking head” format of teaching – we want to create an engaging learning environment in which participants are challenged, inspired and encouraged through teaching, storytelling, activities and creative interaction.
If you want to get a taste of what some of the teaching in the Vineyard School of Justice is like, this is a great event for you!
Everyone is welcome to attend. There are no special requirements other than you want to engage in the material!
