I was so thankful to participate in The Justice Conference simulcast a couple weekends ago. Like the previous year, my heart was broken, encouraged, and transformed as I listened to the speakers who shared their stories and the work of justice that God is doing all over the world. Let there be no doubt, pursuing justice is difficult. It often takes long-term commitments, sometimes with very little visible results and that can be discouraging. So why do it? Why pursue justice?
I was so excited to participate in The Justice Conference in 2013! This year, I’ll be attending by watching the simulcast at the “partnership location” in Greensboro, NC. If you are following this series, it means that you care about justice. The Justice Conference is your one-stop-shop to all things justice.
Happy New Year everyone! 2014 is off to a great start! On yesterday, my precious daughter got baptized and partook in her first Lord’s Supper. And today, is my birthday! So I will be spending half of the day in prayer, meditation, thanksgiving and reflection. This afternoon, my little lady and I will attend a “Mommy and Me” dance class and I think my husband plans to whisk me away this evening.
I will conclude my holiday schedule and return to my normal routine on tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to let you know what you have to look forward to on A Sista’s Journey in the weeks and months ahead. I have officially started my last semester of seminary! Hoorah! (It’s a bittersweet feeling actually. While I am looking forward to a little relief from the rigorous deadlines, I will certainly miss the spiritual and intellectual engagement, along with the fellowship.) This semester is also the start of my final independent study in which I will focus on the topic of biblical justice. Therefore, today begins a four month series on biblical justice. While I will reserve Mondays to continue sharing about other topics that we normally discuss on the blog, keep you up to speed on my writings and other publications, and sharing a Christian Worldview on current events, the rest of the week will be devoted to the series. I will conduct the Biblical Justice Blog Series in a similar manner as the Racial Reconciliation Series completed in 2012.
