Workshop – Justice for the poorest of the poor is not Trumped Up.
Time: 17:00 Saturday
Where: Elm Dining
Style: Interactive Workshop
In this workshop we will be talking facts and no fake-news, because The world’s maginalised need action and honesty. Amid threats of terrorism and large scale immigration National Security is big on many nation’s agendas but what does it mean to be neighbours to one-another? Is it a time to be building walls or knocking them down? Is all this some kind of prophecy being fulfilled? How can we be sure when and how to respond to God’s call for change and action on behalf of the most marginalised when there are so many competing voices, each with their own truths?
