Talking Justice : 21 May, ONLINE
In 2020 the world changed in unexpected ways. COVID-19 has revealed vast inequalities and threats to wellbeing. Our churches are not in their buildings but are alive in communities.
In the midst of this, what does it mean to be a people of justice and peace? How do we live in a crisis and work for God’s kingdom?
How might our response to the challenges of the pandemic be part of bringing about justice today, as well as building a future where all are able to thrive?
Join Church leaders and the ecumenical Joint Public Issues Team for a panel discussion, reflection and Q&A to explore:
- how COVID-19 changes the environment in which Christians are seeking peace and pursuing justice
- what our priorities should be to respond to urgent need
- how we can act today to help build justice, in the present and the future?
