Redeemer Churches and Ministries, in partnership with Hope for New York, is pleased to announce that its next Formation Conference, Formed for Justice,* will take place on November 16 and 17 at the New York Society for Ethical Culture.
Throughout the Bible we learn that God is a God of justice, and that through the power of the gospel Christians are called to live in ways that reflect this justice. In fact, scripture tells us that one of the most powerful ways that the church embodies the gospel is through the love and unity we demonstrate across economic, cultural and racial divides (Colossians 3:12-15). What does this look like in our fractured society? How can we stay hopeful when it seems we are more divided than ever?
In this special two-day event, we will delve into questions such as:
• Who is my neighbor?
• What does the Bible have to say about race and why is it important?
• How do we build relationships with, and learn from, people who are different from us?
• What role does the church have to play in addressing areas of injustice?
• How can we begin taking action now to advance mercy and justice?
The Redeemer family of churches believes that as Christ’s love transforms us, we participate in our spiritual growth through the practices we keep each day, the community we commit to, and through fulfilling our callings. In living out our callings, we can bring renewal where God has placed us: in our work, relationships, and neighborhoods. As we seek to challenge injustice in our neighborhoods, we take an active role in the gospel movement God is growing in NYC.
Join us this November as we encourage one another to see our neighborhoods as places to root ourselves, and invest in the flourishing of our neighbors. Speakers include Christina Edmondson, Daniel Hill, Dr. Tim Keller, Soong-Chan Rah, Gabriel Salguero and Jemar Tisby. The weekend will also include worship, times of reflection, and workshops to equip us in advancing justice wherever we are.
