Moravian Justice Ministry Conference: The Two Feet of Justice
Friday, September 21st through Sunday, September 23rd is an opportunity to take another step for justice! One foot is direct service ministries in providing food, shelter, and other basic needs. The second foot, which is our focus for this weekend, moves us beyond charity to justice through advocacy and prophetic ministries that call for equitable and liberating change. This conference will provide tools for congregations and individuals to step into justice ministry. Issue focuses will include: Criminal Justice Reform, Civil Rights of Immigrants, Racial Equity, Housing, Gun Violence, and Health Care. Featured Speakers include recently retired CEO of the Minnesota Council of Churches, the Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin, Director of the Social Justice Minor Program at UW Oshkosh, Courtney Bauder, and JOSHUA of Brown County Community Organizer Rachel Westenberg.
The Conference will be held at Mt. Morris Camp and Conference Center. The cost is $110 for cabins and $135 for Black Oak Lodge. Registrations after Monday, August 20th are $120 for cabins and $145 for Black Oak Lodge. Register with Rev. Marian Boyle Rohloff at 920-499-4433 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
