What does it mean for the Methodist Church to be a justice-seeking church?
The Walking with Micah: Methodist Principles for Social Justice project will help the Methodist Church in Britain to focus on their principles and priorities for justice and through that increase their ability to seek God’s justice, as a Church and in individual Christian lives.
This two-year project is being headed up by Rachel Lampard while she is on secondment from the Joint Public Issues Team. It will include:
- Drawing on Methodist heritage of challenging injustice and learning from the insights and challenges of others within and beyond the Christian faith.
- Consulting widely within the Methodist Church and listening to what matters to Methodist people at this time.
- Working with others to resource individuals, churches and leaders, to speak and act for justice both individually and in the name of the Methodist Church in Britain.
On 13 June, the inaugural Methodist Justice Lecture with former PM Gordon Brown launched the project. You can watch it back here.
