Living out Biblical Justice in Today’s World
Tuesday, February 18, 2020, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Journey with Women Engage to glimpse the power of justice in the Scriptures and examine ideas such as equity, equality, distributive and creative justice, participation and dignity and shalom. What does the biblical narrative tell us about our God of Justice and His heart for justice in the world? How does that differ from the ideas and concepts of justice around us in our culture today? Spend time with other women exploring specific ways in which each of us can live out the call to biblical justice.
