We are the face of social justice, mission and outreach, care for the environment, and concern for the world at this church. Here we meet and through plans and action, we strive to make a difference.
The Justice Ministry at Knox is comprised of the Mission & Outreach Group; the Bulletin Page which informs the congregation of activities at Knox (e.g., Mission Fair), outside justice events in the city, and actions & events in the wider church (e.g., Kairos), and individual Knox Justice Initiatives, such as the series “Eye of the Storm”.
Our team represents the heart and soul of who we are and what we believe in!
Issues are so diverse. We need you to join our fun-loving, results oriented team. Please contact us through the Knox office and someone will contact you.
Eye of the Storm
Eye of the Storm, an initiative of the Justice Ministry, draws diverse people together to discuss environmental and economic concerns as they pertain to the oil and gas industry. It formed in response to GC41′s motion to oppose further development of the Northern Gateway Pipeline. This group meets once monthly to reflect on our values and possibilities, and is committed to increased education through respectful dialogue.
Eye of the Storm, part of the Justice Ministry at Knox, invites you to attend a meeting on Monday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m. We are planning a fall seminar on the topic “Acting in an Unsustainable World”.
We use group dialogue techniques to engage people from diverse backgrounds and experiences with the goal of increasing communication between the oil & gas industry and environmentalists. All are encouraged to share their stories and values, following the Ganzian Storytelling process. For more information contact Sharon at 403-246-2508, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
