The ministry of social justice and activism is demanding. Most of us working in this area sense a deep calling to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and alienated in what I simply term the ‘Justice of Jesus.’ Within this vocation there are profound opportunities for encounters with the divine and personal transformation, while at the same time there are challenges of perplexity, exhaustion and even desolation.
Come and explore the encounter with the divine in the ministry of social justice, the place of contemplative discipline in the life of a Christian activist and social transformation shaped by ‘presence.’
Designed for Christians working in social ministry who want to explore the possibility of a deeper spiritual engagement or hit the refresh button on their ministry.
