The inaugural Justice and Mission Lecture will take place on Tuesday 13 November 2012, 7.30-9.30pm at Redcliffe College (for more about Redcliffe, see below).
Justice is a central part of God’s character and his mission. Even so, it can be challenging to work out what justice as the mission of God means in practice. Joel Edwards, International Director of Micah Challenge (see further details below), will give us a biblical and theological overview of the theme of justice as it relates to the character and mission of God. He will also explore some of the key global trends and issues facing today’s church in these areas.
During the evening we will also give a brief presentation about the jusTice initiative, focusing on issues of justice, advocacy and reconciliation in mission.
The lecture is free but pre-booking is required. For more information and to book your place, fill in the booking form at redcliffe.org/justice-and-mission-lecture, or email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01452 308097.
