Dikaiosune Social Justice Symposium

August 11 - August 12

For Such a Time as This: Resisting God’s Call to Fight for Justice

The silence of the church throughout the recent Black Lives Matter movement reveals an alarming disconnect between the social justice orientations of Christ and our present-day understanding of what it means to function as the salt and light of our world. Within the vulnerability of this politically charged social moment, as our nation is steeped in continuous outrage, pain, and confusion, the church must function as a space of relevance, critical hope, and refuge for our communities. Drawing on the story of Esther, Dr. Lyiscott will challenge attendees to critically reflect on the politics of positionality in God’s kingdom so that we purpose our lives for the work of equity and justice as central to our Christian values.
