The theme of The Justice Conference Asia 2017 is “LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR” (Mark 12). Our generation faces some complex justice issues such as ever growing poverty, human-trafficking, various refugee crises, and increasingly politically charged societies. BUT the timeless truth which Jesus spoke in Mark 12:30-31 is still our greatest call to Worship and Justice. “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.” Our understanding of God should compel love for others and engagement in justice, and this year’s conference will seek to explore how to practically walk this command out.

Will you join us from 20-21 October 2017?



Let’s make justice a process, not an afterthought.
— Simon Tam
