Join us for the Micah Lecture on Monday, 5th June in the Lady Chapel, Liverpool Cathedral.
This year’s Micah Lecture is your opportunity to hear Bishop Paul talk about how he sees our Diocese deepening its engagement in social justice concerns.
Formerly known as the Urban Lecture and based on the verse from Micah 6.8, “God has shown you what is good…and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God;” the annual Micah Lectures will build on the foundations of exploring social justice and urban ministry.
Over the next few years, the aim of the lectures will be to create the space to reflect, share social justice experiences, while being inspired by scholars, theologians and practitioners who share a commitment to making a bigger difference.
The series of Micah Lectures will consider the missional impact of this ‘bigger difference’ social justice work and review the questions below.
How are our practices responding to human need by loving service?
How are our practices transforming unjust structures of society, challenging violence of every kind and pursuing peace and reconciliation?
How are our practices safeguarding the integrity of creation, and sustaining and renewing the life of the earth?
You’re invited to join us to see how we are being the hands and feet of Christ in the world: building God’s Kingdom, comforting the stranger, being good neighbours, loving the “unlovable”, healing the sick and bringing new life.
In the first of the Micah Lectures - ‘more justice in the world - impact, thrive and buzz’; Bishop Paul will explore how, we as Christians in the community, are called to change the world for the better and make a bigger difference. This will inspire us to think about the impact of the generosity of our service in Christ, how this creates thriving attractive communities that buzz with life.
