“The Junction at Anglican Action Mahi Mihinare, offers people the opportunity to be together for the sake of the justice of God in the world… The Junction in 2012 gave me new vision and new courage to be what we are called to: As Micah said; To act justly, to practice kindness and to walk humbly with God. Why not come this year, there is much to give and receive.” Archbishop David Moxon
The Junction values co-learning, it is a convergence of thinking and active participants with a passion for justice on all levels coming together to reflect and ponder their work in a context that is story-based, contemplative and theological. We endeavour to create a temporary community of shared ‘sight’ and ‘insight’. Our speakers we ask to speak to us from their lives – what experience has taught them, what questions does that experience evoke, what paths have they explored. The Junction offers exchange and interchange, a timely convergence for justice co-conspiring companions and a deepening of relationship with social justice as a gospel way of life.
The Junction 2013 will use the current art installation Difference… as a reflective space and resource for learning.
The themes for this year include:
Crossing the road for our neighbours. Equality—the justice frontier. Navigating internal changes/challenges of encountering and embracing difference.
Guest speakers this year include and cover some of the following:
“We become neighbours when we are willing to cross the road for one another. There is so much separation and segregation…” Aroha Yates “…between black people and white people…” Susan Thompson “…between gay people and straight people…” Lindsay Cumberpatch and Alan Leadley “…between Jews and Gentiles, Muslims and Christians, Protestants and Catholics, Greek Catholics and Latin Catholics…”
Monday 14th (5pm start) – Thursday 17th (5pm finish) October 2013. Held at Anglican Action in Hamilton. The cost is $40 which covers the meals. To apply or for more information please contact Maree Aldridge firstname.lastname@example.org or (07) 856 5820
