We are so excited for Justice Week at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary from March 19-23! This year, our vision draws from Jesus’ own prayer in Matthew 6. The person of Christ reminds us that God’s kingdom justice has taken on flesh and beckons us to live in His example as we cry: “Your will being done on earth.” Each day’s scheduling will center upon a different verse of the Lord’s Prayer, from seeking our “daily bread” to His “kingdom come.” Our prayer is that through collective lament, worship and service, we would become a united presence and image of His embodied justice to the Northshore and Boston community in the here-and-now.
Though Justice Week is only five days, we anticipate that it will launch us into a proactive and enduring response to God’s will and heart for justice. At the same time, may we also be called to a heart of rest and celebration in the truth that the final work and word of justice is His.
You are invited to join us on our main campus in South Hamilton as we explore the power of prayer in the work of justice using the Lord’s Prayer as a framework.
