New JustFaith Offering in Louisville!
Be the change. (Mahatma Gandhi) JustFaith is an inspiring and energizing, small-group program of JustFaith Ministries that invites participants to live more simply and compassionately. Through engaging reading, thought-provoking dialogue and relationship building around today’s issues, you’ll share a journey of faith that invites you to consider how you can “be the change” in our world. JustFaith Ministries staff will be facilitating and hosting Phase One of the NEW JustFaith program, Living Compassionately: Caring for the Poor, this summer! We hope to have representatives of various different denominations/Christian churches in the Louisville area for this summer group. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested in participating, contact Susie Tierney at [email protected] or 502-429-0865 Ext. 7. This eight-week JustFaith Phase will be offered on Monday mornings and/or evenings, beginning April 29. Click here for the flyer (PDF). Participants will be responsible for cost of books – approximately $45 per person.
New JustMatters Module!
Just Engagement: The Power to Change, will be available on April 15. This new module of JustFaith Ministries introduces participants to different advocacy models that are rooted in Christian beliefs and a biblical tradition of justice, and have inspired ordinary and extraordinary change-makers throughout history. Just Engagement responds to the pressing desire from individuals and various communities of faith to act and work towards change in today’s world. Inspired by past and present movements, participants learn how to utilize different strategies to reach their advocacy goals. More information is available by clicking here.
