Healing our Broken Humanity - Public Lecture
18 June 2019
We live in conflicted times. Our newsfeeds are filled with inequality, division, and fear. We want to make a difference and see justice restored because Jesus calls us to be a peacemaking and reconciling people. But how do we do this?
Based on their work with diverse churches, colleges, and other organizations, Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Graham Hill will speak about Christian practices that can bring healing and hope to a broken world. They provide ten ways to transform society, from lament and repentance to relinquishing power, reinforcing agency, and more. Embodying these practices enables us to be the new humanity in Jesus Christ, so the church and world can experience reconciliation, justice, unity, peace, and love. Discover how to bring real change and hope to a broken, divided, and dehumanized world.
Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Graham Hill will also launch their new book, “Healing Our Broken Humanity” on the night! (Winner of the 16th Annual Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year – Culture)
