Over the last couple of weeks I laid some foundations from the book of Amos, looking at the origins of the writer, the historical context of his writing, and some of the challenges he was called to address in that era.
Moving forward we will be hosting Mike Chasterton (Tearfund). Mike has experience in working with churches to identify and address challenges within their community. He will be working from a theological stand point in helpings us channel our skills and resources towards some of the challenges in Bexley.
In the words of Amos:
Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
– (Amos 5:22-24)
So, join us in our work towards social justice, starting with Bexley.
