This discussion guide will complement your conversation during and after The Edge: Let Justice Roll Down
In the modern era, the face of social justice has changed. Every day our news feeds involve the latest rally or march in various world cities. It is the power of the Internet and mobile devices that deliver these social justice issues right into our pockets and ultimately into our lives.
A spark has been lit that has led to the establishment of multiple movements throughout the past year. From #blacklivesmatter, the #metoo movement and the issues in the church, justice is being sought out.
What used to be an issue that impacts others in distant lands now spills over onto the streets of your community.
The world is seeking justice and we are taking this topic to The Edge. Be sure to listen in to the discussions on justice from speakers Brooke Prentis and Dr John Dickson. (Moderator: Russ Matthews)
