NWP Lay Servant Training - Advanced Course - Justice in Everyday Living
With all of the world screaming out loud for JUSTICE, ever wonder about the view of how Methodism works for justice in the lives we live according to God? Consider this course… The Lay Servant Class; “Justice in Everyday Living,”- Christie This course highlights the Social Principles of the United Methodist Church. We learn from our past…how John Wesley invested his time in relationships with people who were marginalized in England. He led a movement that sought to integrate personal piety with social holiness. He believed that God called him to spread Scriptural Holiness over the land. As we seek justice, we are informed by our Social Principles and Scripture. Because being a leader entails more than just learning information, you will be invited to take what you have learned and share it with others. At the conclusion of the class, you will develop a small group study, conversation or sermon informed by our Social Principles and Scripture that addresses a current injustice prevalent in your community (hunger, poverty, racism, etc). Dee Stickley-Miner has committed to coach each individual as they develop and implement their plan. Together, we will set a time to reconvene to learn from each other and to celebrate our leadership in action.
