Turning Faith Into Action: The Justice Conference, Feb. 24 to 25

111026_justiceconference

When I attended the Justice Conference last year, it felt as if I'd found my people. I often connect to the Master Creator through art and prayer. For me, prayer often takes the form of a watercolor. I have also long believed that art can be a form of advocacy that connects hearts and minds to the call of God’s justice.

So last year when I attended the Justice Conference and saw Nicholas Wolterstorff on stage giving a lecture on the theology of justice, followed by the inspiring spoken word of Micah Bournes, while in the back of the room, an artist created a beautiful original piece of art, I was hooked. I’m going back this year and I hope to see you there.

The Justice Conference is full of creative Christians using every gift from God to turn faith into action by expressing an authentic desire to live out God’s call for healing injustice in this broken world.  Micah Bournes will be back this year, as well as a host of inspiring speakers including Francis Chan, Walter Brueggeman, and Shane Claiborne.  Oh, and did I mention the music?  Prepare to be wowed.

If you can get to Portland, Oregon in February, join your thread to the thousands of others weaving their voices and gifts into a conversation about justice.
