“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love thy neighbour as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31 NIV
When we thoughtfully examine the statement “love thy neighbour,” we are compelled to ask: Who is my neighbour? This question is often met with hostility and justifications, but if we are to truly follow the example of Jesus, we must confront the uncomfortable reality of loving all God’s children – all made in the image of God.
Across two days, six main sessions, 18 workshops, and five different workshop streams, The Justice Conference Asia 2019 will open up a conversation on the call we carry to reach out toward “the other” in compassion, justice and love. During the conference, hear from international justice voices and practitioners in Asia who will explore practically what it might look like to love our neighbours as radically as Jesus did.
The discussions will flow from a theology of justice that calls followers of Christ into a more intentional lifestyle of “living justly” as we seek to live out our faith and be disciples of Jesus.
Speakers include Eugene Cho, the founder of One Day’s Wages, Melissa Kwee, the chief executive of National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre, and Ken Wytsma, the lead pastor of Village Church.
Date: Friday-Saturday, October 18-19, 2019

About The Justice Conference:
The Justice Conference was birthed out of a simple idea and a compelling paradox – true life is found when one gives their lives away on behalf of others. It was founded in 2010 in Oregon, USA.
