What is the Justice Conference?
The Justice Conference is more than just a few occasional gatherings.
TJC is a global movement of Jesus-followers engaging in conversation
and pursuing a lifestyle of biblical justice.
We gather scholars, speakers and artists
to help us pursue this transformative goal, and invite the whole Church to join the justice conversation.
What is happening in 2020?
In addition to wreaking havoc on our lives,
Covid19 is being seen by many as providing an opportunity
to revisit what we do and how we do it. Here in Aotearoa, instead of returning to our plans for a physical conference in Auckland,
we’ve moved into a new, online mode,
with three major initiatives.
We’ve launched a Just Art Competition
to invite songwriters, poets, painters, photographers and graphic artists
to submit inspirational works of art based on the Lord’s Prayer.
We’ve shared a series of Justice Conversations
with leaders and experts in the field about justice,
engaging in various themes from the Lord’s Prayer.
We’re gathering on October 31st from10am-3pm,
for our Online Conference!
Instead of gathering in one building in one city,
we are going to invite the Church
to participate in the conversation like never before
by hosting Watch Parties
in auditoriums, cafes, living rooms and various other spaces
up and down the country!
What is the Theme?
Our theme is “Ki Te Whenua”,
taken from a widely used Māori translation
of Te Karakia o te Atua (The Lord’s Prayer).
This karakia is rich with themes
such as worhsip, confession, ethics, reconciliation, and mission. Our exciting gathering of speakers will explore these themes
from their unique experience and expertise.
Join the conversation!
