The work of justice is hard. It is painful, sacrificial, and often times solitary. It can feel like real tangible progress is a long way off, sustainable change a distant dream. When injustice is our ever-present reality, we could be forgiven for thinking that the future of our justice story is unknown, uncertain, and undefined.

But it's not. Our justice story is God's story, and God is not overwhelmed. He is at work. Every single moment he is moving his creation towards his intended purposes to restore and renew. And because of that our justice journey is not a chasing after the wind. It is purposeful, intentional and prophetic.

The picture our Scriptures give us is that at the end of all things God will make all things new. Yes, All Things New. The messy, complicated, frustrating things. The broken, hopeless, overwhelming things. The things that make us want to quit and give up. They are not lost; they will be restored.

 

Join us 19–20 October 2018 as together we join God in the renewal of all.

推動公義的工作毫不容易,有時很痛苦、很孤單,當中亦有許多犧牲。這工作難以在一朝一夕間得到明顯的進展或可持續的改變。我們四周的現實中仍然存在著許許多多的不公義,這也難怪我們會在這追求公義的路上感到迷惘,覺得前路充滿未知和不確定性。

然而這條路並不絕望,因為我們追求公義的故事就是上帝祂自己的故事,祂不會氣餒。祂所做的,就是每分每秒都在使萬物復和、使萬象更新。因此,我們追求公義,並不是在捕風捉影;追求公義是有意義、有方向、先知性的事情。

按照聖經的記載,神在終末時會使萬象更新。沒錯,萬象都要更新。所有那些混亂、複雜、令人苦惱的事情;那些破碎、絕望、令人感到無力的痛苦;那些令我們想放棄的衝動,通通都會得到更新。更新不是說倏地消失,而是被神修復。

 

2018年10月19–20日,讓我們一起見證上帝更新萬物!
