As a conversation space for justice in the Christian Reformed Church, the Do Justice blog seeks to encourage people to have conversations around justice. But how do we stay in dialogue with people who strongly disagree with us on an issue we are passionate about, especially when that issue affects the lives of people in very tangible ways? How do we foster conversation with people that we disagree with on an issue they are very passionate about and that also affects people’s lives in very real ways? How do we have these conversations on social media, which adds another dimension to our disagreement?
During this Do Justice series we will be hearing from people who because of the nature of their jobs, the things they are passionate about, or the people they interact with have had a lot of experience answering those questions. We hope that this series will give us some guidance and advice to begin to answer those questions. Above all, we hope that this series will help you stay in conversation in constructive ways that honor and respect the image of God in those you disagree with and in the people affected by the issues you are talking about.
Will you make a personal commitment to respectful dialogue, especially for this year's Christian Reformed Church Synod gathering? To make your commitment public, and to encourage others to follow your lead, tweet or share a Facebook post with the hashtags #CRCsynod and #CRClistens.
