Justice Camp 2014—LAND!

Adults of all ages and all church backgrounds are invited to gather in Edmonton August 15-21, 2014 to encounter a variety of social justice issues up close and first hand. Choose from 7 amazing plenary streams including:

  1. Faith in the Oil/Tar Sands Developments: Excavating for Deeper Narratives
  2. Soup, Sandwiches, Supported Housing and Soul Care – Urban responses to Systemic Poverty
  3. Aboriginal Reconciliation
  4. Earth, Sky, Fire and Water: Ecology and Conservation
  5. Food: Who Benefits?
  6. From the Dust of the Ground: Inter-religious Perspectives
  7. Land and See: How the Arts Shape our Vision of Social Justice

Through a program of directed immersion experiences, biblical reflection, worship and relationship building, participants will develop skills for becoming effective social justice leaders within their own local communities.

Throughout the Judeo-Christian Scriptures it is clear that land, spirituality, and the development of community are all inseparably linked. Similar wisdom about the deep connection between land and life is found in the spiritual traditions of the Aboriginal cultures who have lived on the Plains for thousands of years. Justice Camp 2014 will reflect on what these teachings have to say about living in balance with the land and one another.
