IONA WORSHIP : OCTOBER to MAY 2019-20
“GOD’S JUSTICE FOR A BROKEN LAND”
The theme of God’s passion for justice is prominent throughout the Bible. It is key to understanding the mission and ministry of Jesus. Most of the challenges facing the world at the present time, relate to issues around restorative justice. Committment to a just global society is central to the witness of the Iona Community, so in a period likely to be one of the most critical in the history of our nation, the team planning Iona worship this year have decided to make it our focus. We hope you will come and explore the theme with us at our monthly services, dates and places of which are listed below. We look forward to welcoming you!
Key text: Jeremiah 22:16(b) ‘..on the basis of this text, we might conclude that the practice of justice is THE VERY REALITY OF GOD’. (W.Brueggemann)
