NETWORK: Justice and Service: Walking in the Way of the Redeemer
Thursday March 2, 2023
7 pm – 9 pm Eastern or 7 pm – 9 pm Mountain
Young people desire the opportunity to make a difference. We can provide them with opportunities to give direct service in places and situations that need the Good News proclaimed through action. Young people also need to know that they are able to speak for the voiceless, the abandoned and impoverished by working for justice in the places where they find themselves.
Through justice education, experiences and reflection and prayer, we can instill a sense of justice, compassion and service among young people of all ages, by inviting them to walk in the way of Jesus, the Redeemer.
