Immersion learning takes students through a week of looking at the differences between justice and mercy from a biblical viewpoint. We question the dominant paradigm of the church’s ministry to the poor and attempt to consider more authentically biblical ways of showing God’s love in a broken world. Through classes taught by different people on our team, the use of film, and hands on practice students are challenged and equipped to engage their lives with marginalized people.
Groups of 8 or less are welcomed to apply to join us for a week of study. Please contact email@example.com for more details.
Life in the Margins is coming soon!
A weekend workshop where we will explore God’s heart for people on the margins of society. We will examine stories from the Bible and share our experiences from life in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Together we will wrestle with questions like:
Who are the marginalized?
Is God biased toward the poor?
Are we called to save people?
What is the difference between mercy and justice?
What is the gospel?
This workshop will spark your imagination as you live out God’s call to love marginalized people in your own neighbourhood, school, church, or workplace.
Next Offered: Winter 2013
