Social Justice Series

The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan and the Coppage-Gordon School for Ministry invite you to build skills, get resources, and prepare for the work of the church by participating in our upcoming Social Justice Series.  Through 2017, four workshops will focus on the varying aspects of the work of sacred activism.  Our rector, The Rev. Ken Hitch, joins presenters including ministry leaders from our local communities, wider church, and beyond.

The Social Justice Series will take place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Flint, MI.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZING – MARCH 4

Sister Cheryl Liske, Gamaliel Network and the New Ezekiel Project

Using the knowledge and experience from her life as a professional organizer and her resources through the Gamaliel Network of Michigan, Sister Cheryl Liske will lead us through an introduction to the tools of community organizing through the lens of our Gospel call to dismantle structural racism and cycles of poverty. The workshop will look at how to transform communities from the bottom up through examinations of power and perspective, one-on-one relationship building, and more.

ASSET BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT – JUNE 10

The Rev. Dan Scheid, the Rev. Ken Hitch, Katie Forsyth

Go beyond the food pantry. Asset Based Community Development (or ABCD) is a model for developing mutual and missional relationships between church and community. This workshop will delve into the theory of ABCD and will give participants some hands-on practice into how to implement an ABCD-style approach to outreach programs and community relationships.

ADVOCACY & MEDIA ENGAGEMENT – SEPTEMBER 23

Jim Naughton & Rebecca Wilson, Canticle Communications

How do we get and keep the attention of our legislators to advocate for the issues we’re called to address as a people of faith? Our friends at Canticle Communications will share their experience and give us some tools for advocacy through contact with legislators, engagement with the media, and more.

THE THEOLOGY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE – TELLING THE STORY – DECEMBER 9

Dr. Courtney Cowart, The Beecken Center and Sewanee School of Theology

As Christians struggle against institutions and societal norms that perpetuate violence, structural inequities, and ambivalence, the Church must become a contrasting space of non-violence, peace, voice, and sacred activism. Dr. Courtney Cowart will share her expertise in justice theology and how our core beliefs shape the stories of our lives and of our ministries.

REGISTER NOW! 

The cost to attend is $40 per workshop. Scholarship assistance is available.

Each workshop is from 9:30-3:30pm with registration opening at 9:00am
