Event description

Description

Power - the ability to make a difference in the world.

All of us in the Alumni Network have enormous power, whether that’s in our purchasing, our giving, our votes, our relationships or our workplaces.

The Bible shows us that when power is not used well, it results in the devastation of communities, the exploitation of people and distance from God. As a community who hold influence, we need to recognise this. We need to learn how to hold authority with humility and vulnerability like Jesus. We need to establish disciplines and rhythms to protect us from the corruption of power.

Power is at the centre of human relationships. When we look at the world and ask, who has the power? who doesn’t? how can we make things fairer?, we’re confronted with a whole load of justice issues. From racism to homelessness, slavery to corruption, it’s an imbalance of power that keeps the oppressed in their place. How can we confront these systems of power? How can use our own influence to bring about long-term, systemic change?

Come and join us for a day of grappling with both big system change and our everyday uses of power in our relationships and communities. Join us for a day of learning how to wield power in a Godly way that will be part of shifting injustice now, and setting us on a path for seeing great change in the future. Join us in reflection about the influence we have and to be reminded of whose power it is that we need to receive.

Expect challenge, joy, worship, prayer, community and fun as we explore all things Re: Power.
