It’s not fair! – perspectives on 21st century justice

Session date: Thursday 7th August 2014 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: M102 Upper Octagon Session track

It’s not fair that 4 billion people are not protected by their justice system. It’s not fair that one in three widows in Africa have their land stolen. It’s not fair that nearly 30 million people today are enslaved. It’s not fair that Christians are the most persecuted religious minority in the world. It’s not fair that in some countries Christians are beaten, jailed, harassed or even killed. ‘It’s not fair…’ Through use of biblical case studies and discussion we will consider what biblical justice looks like and explore ways we can practically seek justice as individuals and churches.
