Tuesdays, July 12, 19, and 26
6:30-7:30 p.m., Central Market, North Lamar
The Mercy & Justice Discussion and Book Study Group will be reading Becoming a Justice Seeking Congregation: Responding to God’s Justice Initiative this July.
Based on sound biblical, theological, and liturgical grounding, Becoming a Justice Seeking Congregation offers practical know-how strategies addressing justice issues in a variety of settings. Idealism and realism are combined in a “rubber hits the road” local church kind of justice discernment and discovery. Designed as an ecumenical study guide, Becoming a Justice Seeking Congregation addresses the why, what, where, and how questions related to practicing justice. It provides a fresh invitation for the church to work for systemic change in the world.
We have a Facebook group for online discussion as well as meeting in person. All are welcome to join us online and/or in person at Central Market. Becoming a Justice Seeking Congregation can be purchased online through Amazon, Cokesbury or currently on sale at www.umwmissionresources.org/.
Please read the intro and chapters 1-2 for July 12.
