Why do our scriptures and sermons encourage people of faith to "do justice" but we fear or ignore action?
All clergy and key leaders (e.g., congregational staff and Council Presidents or their equivalents) within Douglas and Shawnee counties are encouraged to come together to explore answers to this question. The discussion is designed to equip faith leaders to reclaim this call and build a culture where doing justice is embraced within the local faith institution.
- Dr. Walter Brueggemann, Old Testament scholar, author, and social critic
- Rev. John Aeschbury, Executive Director of the DART Center
- 1 - 2 pm: for clergy who have not yet joined Justice Matters or Topeka JUMP in order to be introduced to justice as expressions of our faith tradition
- 2 - 4 pm: Dr. Walter Brueggemann and Rev. John Aeschbury will lead a discussion about doing justice and cultural setting in faith institutions
