JustFaith Small Group Begins November 19 – Join Us!
JustFaith is a deep-dive into issues of social holiness. JustFaith is a 24-week small group experience woven together with Scripture, prayer, reading, retreats, immersion experiences and more. This program is not for the faint of heart! It is a significant commitment to pour one’s self into learning about the things that break God’s heart. The program is non-partisan and is a thoughtful way to discuss with other Christians the important justice issues in our world. You can lean more about the JustFaith organization on their website, JustFaith.org or watch this overview video or this testimonial video.
We’ll meet on Thursdays starting on November 19 from 10:30 am to 1pm. Each week, we’ll gather to discuss readings, watch videos, experience spiritual practices, and break bread together. In addition to many articles, some of the books we’ll be reading together over the 24 weeks include:
Barking to the Choir by Gregory Boyle
The Little Book of Biblical Justice by Chris Marshall
The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong Can Be Made Right by Lisa Sharon Harper
Evicted by Matthew Desmond
Toxic Charity by Robert Lupton
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
Strength to Love by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Below is our proposed schedule for the first third of the program. We plan to continue our Thursday meetings beyond those listed below, but may elect to take a week’s break from time to time and adjust to holidays, school breaks, etc.
You may join us for JustFaith in-person or online through Zoom.
