God and Justice

 

God&Justice2

In response to much of the political and national debates happening on our campuses and in our nation, a group of us from across the His People churches have come together to initiate response and service to the campuses and our communities at this time. We have had the honor of putting together a ‘God and Justice’ sermon series for the Cape Town His People churches that was leading up to the local government elections. The response has been really good. Many students have said that they are so glad their church is finally speaking and addressing some of the issues that are burning in their hearts from a biblical perspective.

We split the sermon series into “God’s Heart for Justice“, “God and Social Justice” and “God and Political Justice“. At the end of the series we asked if there was anyone who felt called to serve in government, whether in student government on campuses or in local and/or national government. We will be meeting with these students in September to inspire and encourage them on their journey.

I had the privilege of preaching on “God and Social justice” at His People Baxter

Following on from the God and Justice series, there are many collaborations we are a part of so we can keep communication open and work towards unity and change in our nation. Two such initiatives are Real Talk events in August – a frank public conversation about race and the other initiative is the first Justice Conference in Africa, which will be in March 2017.
