Acting for Justice Webinars
Join us on Thursday, November 18, 7:00 p.m. ET, for a presentation by Tom Ulrich entitled, “A Spirituality for Social Justice Ministry in a Faith Community.”
When we claim to be true followers of Jesus Christ, we are making a life-long commitment to social justice ministry. This work is immensely rewarding, enormously meaningful, and joy-filled, even while it is also frustrating, heart-wrenching, and exhausting. Much insightful information has been written about the connection between spirituality and social justice; however, little attention has been paid to a spirituality of social justice relevant specifically to those leading the efforts in a faith community. The social justice ministry emotional rollercoaster experienced by practitioners, especially leaders of social justice ministry in a faith community, is the subject of this session. A description with a set of guiding principles will be explored, as a means to nurture and joy.
About the speaker: Tom Ulrich, a JustFaith graduate, has over 40 years of professional experience in assisting faith communities organize their social justice ministry efforts. He has held positions in both local and national social justice ministry organizations. He is now consulting churches, offering leadership skills workshops, strategic visioning/planning sessions, ministry management coaching, and facilitation of “Spirituality of Social Justice Ministry” retreats.
