We live at a time of huge change when domestic and global injustices are being revealed and intensified. The prophet Micah reminded people that the worship God wants is for us to act justly, to love as God loves, and to walk humbly with God.
Justice-seeking has always been integral to a Christian relationship with God and around the globe and in their own local communities, Christians are working for justice through responding to needs and campaigning for change. The Walking with Micah: Methodist Principles for Social Justice project will help the Methodist Church in Britain to focus on its principles and priorities for justice and through that increase its ability to seek God’s justice, as a Church and in individual Christian lives.
Between February and March everyone is being invited to take part in a local conversation about justice, and the feedback will help to influence what the Methodist Church does and says to tackle injustice. This two-year project will involve:
· Drawing on the Methodist heritage of challenging injustice and learning from the insights and challenges of others within and beyond the Christian faith.
· Consulting widely within the Methodist Church and listening to what matters to Methodist people at this time.
· Working with others to resource individuals, churches and leaders, to speak and act for justice both individually and in the name of the Methodist Church in Britain.
If you are interested in completing a questionnaire to enable the Methodist Church to see how churches might best be supported in the project , please go to www.methodistchurch.org.uk and follow the link to ‘Walking with Micah conversations’.. below contains a helpful diagram outlining the Walking with Micah project
