Short Course on Biblical Justice and Christian Formation
November 7, 14, & 21, 2020
Do you wonder about Biblical visions of justice and how our lives can be shaped by them? Does your church talk about and act upon economic justice enough?
This short course explores the Presbyterian scholar Michael Barram’s Missional Economics: Biblical Justice and Christian Formation. This is a LIVE ZOOM event on Saturdays, November 7, 14, and 21 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. The author will lead one session, and two notable Church leaders will lead us in the others. This timely event is co-sponsored by the Justice Formation Fellowship, a group of Multi- Cultural, White, and Black congregations who stand with the Institute for Justice Formation, John Leland Center for Theological Studies. Join us for this ecumenical and multi-cultural conversation of key Biblical texts on justice and economics, and their implications for our communities. There will be time for Q & A at each of our sessions. And with Zoom, there is NO SPACE LIMIT, so please invite your church brothers and sisters. NO FEE during these stressful times.

The Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington has been created by a group of Presbyterian churches in the Washington D.C. area to promote understanding and deepen appreciation of the Reformed tradition among the staffs and members of Presbyterian churches.
The Institute’s specific initiatives vary somewhat from year to year, and they are intended to meet the needs of a variety of different kinds of people. Some are targeted for lay leaders (elders, deacons, teachers, etc.); others are for particular sub-cultures within the life of the church (teens professing their faith, young adults, women, etc.), and still others are for all those, regardless of age, gender, etc. who are interested in taking advantage of the opportunities these offerings present.
Lewinsville is a founding member and sponsor of the Reformed Institute. Lewinsville supports the work of the Reformed Institute and encourages our members to take part in the course offerings. Click on the link below for more information.
