We’re going to be part of a Congregational Team Training at Sardis Missionary Baptist Church on Thursday, July 21, from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM. We will share a bit about community organizing, our strategy for the next several months, and do some one-to-one training.
Although Saint Junia will have a justice team, we encourage anyone who can to come to this training of diverse people from diverse faith traditions. Our church is based on the principles of community organizing, so learning them well will help our whole church to thrive and make a difference in Birmingham.
Churches can no longer be content to just put band-aids on social problems, teaching people to be content with the status quo by promising pie in the sky. The Good News is about how we embody the Kingdom of God here, right now. Thanks for being part of it.
