Social Justice Series

“Where there is no love, let us put love: and so, by your power, draw love out.”

 

What?

The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan and the Coppage-Gordon School for Ministry invite you to join together to build skills, get resources, and prepare for the work of the church by participating in our upcoming Social Justice Series.

Over the course of 2017, we are hosting four workshops focused on the varying aspects of the work of sacred activism hosted  by ministry leaders from our local communities, wider church, and beyond.

The Social Justice Series will take place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Flint.

Jim Naughton & Rebecca Wilson, Canticle Communications

How do we get and keep the attention of our legislators to advocate for the issues we’re called to address as a people of faith? Our friends at Canticle Communications will share their experience and give us some tools for advocacy through contact with legislators, engagement with the media, and more.

The Theology of Social Justice – Telling the Story – DECEMBER 9

Dr. Courtney Cowart, The Beecken Center and Sewanee School of Theology

As Christians struggle against institutions and societal norms that perpetuate violence, structural inequities, and ambivalence, the Church must become a contrasting space of non-violence, peace, voice, and sacred activism. Dr. Courtney Cowart will share her expertise in justice theology and how our core beliefs shape the stories of our lives and of our ministries.
