“Embracing Justice”, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book for 2022 call us to consider:
What might a spirituality shaped by biblical portrayals of justice look like for the church of the 21st century?
ICL is joining with St James Church Voorschoten to look together this Lent period at themes about justice from this book written by Isabelle Hamley.
The 6 session course is an invitation to examine our own lives truthfully, to see the world more deeply and to pray – for the church and the world far and near – that ‘justice may roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream’ (Amos 5.24). Each week we follow a different thread through the many stories of justice in the Bible to explore how God works with humanity to bring justice, wholeness and salvation to all.
Everyone is invited to join. There will be six sessions – every Tuesday evening from 8th March to 12th April. It is okay if you can only join some of the sessions. Options:
Online Group (Evening) | Zoom | Tuesdays 19:45-21:15 | From 8th March
