Event description

Description

“…seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” (Jeremiah 29, verse 7)

This Social Justice Network event (6.30-8pm) will feature input from Anna Ruddick.

Dr Anna Ruddick is a community theologian and researcher who facilitates theological reflection and learning for leaders, congregations and Christian organisations seeking to deepen and strengthen their relationships with their local community. Anna currently represents Livability, as Community Engagement Associate, and Urban Life as a Core team member. She is also a Research Fellow at Bristol Baptist College, and a trustee of the William Temple Foundation.

While it is an open question whether societal change really is happening more quickly today than it did in the past, it can certainly feel that way. Moreover, we hear so much about how people are drifting further and further away from the Church even if it is clear that the big questions of life and meaning haven’t gone away. But what are some of the changes we are talking about and how does one ‘do mission’ in this context? Moreover, what practices or virtues for those ministering in a rapidly changing climate are likely to lead to flourishing for all God’s people?
