It’s hard to believe but Streams of Justice has been around for 10 years. It was in the fall of 2006 that a series called “Reading the Text / Reading the World” was hosted at Grandview Calvary Baptist Church. The series tried to bring together reflection on the biblical text and engagement with the justice issues surrounding us here in the Lower Mainland / unceded Coast Salish Territories … issues of poverty, homelessness, inequality, etc. Out of that series of meetings people decided to continue the work of seeking justice in the city, and in the ensuing months, Streams of Justice emerged.
So here we are 10 years later and we’re still meeting on Monday nights to wrestle with the ongoing reality of poverty and homelessness, along with many other justice concerns. All along we have been focused on probing the root causes and deep social, political, economic, and ideological structures that produce conditions of injustice and human misery, and attempting to mix education with action.
It has been quite a journey, and many of you have been part of SoJ in one way or another over the years. We think we should take the time to remember and uphold the work of SoJ over the past decade, and we want to invite you all to join us in an evening of celebration. It will be a time to enjoy desserts and coffee/tea with friends and share stories about the journey of SoJ as you have experienced it. If you can’t attend the evening, we invite you to write a memory, a story, a reflection of SoJ and send it along to us by email.
We would love to gather all those who have participated in SoJ over the years; we couldn’t have made it to year 10 without you. So we hope you’ll be able to join us for this occasion.
