To Serve This Diverse Justice Community

The JUSTICE Conference Asia seeks to serve this diverse Justice Community – ‘for The Church’, and seeks to ‘mobilise The Church’ into practicing Justice as “A Way of Life”.

Workshop Themes for 2015
This year’s workshops are driven by 6 streams

When Wilberforce campaigned for an end to slavery it was seen by many as a political issue. When Martin Luther King campaigned for racial equality it was seen by many as a political issue. At the time both these issues divided churches, politics and society. Today most Christians (and politicians) would see these as primarily justice issues and not politics. In the OT justice issues and spiritual issues were one and the same thing.

How do Christians today approach politics? How do we retain a cutting-edge challenge to the justice issues involved in many political issues facing society? Are there any biblical principles that we can use to guide an involvement that is not just partisan? Can the church become a united voice to campaign for change or will individuals and groups still need to take the lead?

‘Art (is) for arts sake’ is a true-ism – but the arts can also be a powerful vehicle for expressing truth in many issues including Justice. Cartoons, symbols, drama, dance, music, – and many other forms of artistic expression can be used to comment on justice issues and express powerful advocacy. The arts can also be used for therapy, restoration and wholeness to express emotions and issues caused by personal injustice or exploitation.

How can the Church draw more deeply on these resources which are latent in its community to create impact to Justice issues and provide restoration to the wider community?

Many associate justice with the law and legal issues but how do we ensure that the law itself is just and justly administered. The law has to accommodate changes reflected in society and the ideals of human rights. Some Christians have been uncomfortable with the idea of human rights seeing it as a purely humanistic concept. Many of the lawyers on the frontline of human rights issues around the world are also Christians and see their role in society as a distinctly Christian expression.

How should Christians view the law, human rights and its impact on the many social justice issues facing society today? Can biblical justice form the basis of a new social ethics for society? Does human rights have a biblical foundation?

Business has traditionally been seen as a capitalist concept with its primary function to provide wealth. Recent economic comment has been critical of its claimed social benefits through ‘trickle-down’ theory. Others have tried to redeem business as one of the seven ‘mountains’ of influence using marketplace ministry concepts. Some have suggested ethical business models which can deliver a social justice bottom line as well as profit for shareholders.

Is social enterprise a viable business concept or is it just a small circle initiative to enable socially responsible consumerism to support worthy causes? Is there a future for Christians in big business to exercise high level influence on policy, direction and objectives for benefit of society?

The church seems to have lost the centrality of justice as an expression of God’s heart and placed it at the periphery of its theology. It is often considered a dangerous pursuit or an option to be engaged in when the core work of salvation has been well covered. If the reality of God’s justice is not just to become a 21st century trend for the church there needs to be a theological revolution to match the heart revolution already being embraced and experienced by many believers today. The urgent need is for the institution of the church to catch up with where its congregations are leading and work out how it can be a distinctive voice for justice in societies.
Anti-trafficking efforts have changed from combating the horrific issues involved with the more direct exploitation of one person by another using direct intervention and prosecution, to providing more considered strategies for preventing the systemic issues causing child labor, debt bondage and lack of human rights. Traditional methods for catching the bad guys and freeing the exploited are just not working well enough to make a significant impact on trafficking despite growing public awareness and high profile stories.

Why are anti-trafficking efforts not working? Is awareness raising going to do the job? Is big business just doing what is good for business?
Is exploitation being over- exploited? Why can’t ngo’s partner and collaborate to get the job done? What are the real drivers of slavery?

The JUSTICE Conference is designed to inspire and energize the Justice community in Asia and for practitioners it is a critical time of refreshing, networking and sharing. However with so many interesting sessions to attend, like-minded people do not always find time to meet together to talk, discuss and engage over areas of common interest. This year we are offering an opportunity for practitioners to meet together for a whole day geared around their particular needs and interests. This will be held on Thursday April 30 before the main conference commences.

This day has been designed to allow for enjoyable networking so that you can connect with fellow practitioners from all over Asia who have similar areas of interest and passionate hearts. We are presenting speakers that will inspire you to a fuller, more redeeming service as we work together more strategically on behalf of the most vulnerable and oppressed in the justice field.

We trust that you will be encouraged by what you hear, for example on Redemptive Leadership – What does that look like? How can we lead our organizations in such a way that staff and various stakeholders see the fruit of redeeming life in our leadership style and priorities, and perhaps more importantly our org culture. Or perhaps by the discussion in Redeeming Relationships – How can we better handle conflict to find good resolutions, how can we dialogue towards common ground when we have differing opinions. How can we stand firm for what we believe in and against injustice while also expressing ourselves from a spirit of redemptive love.

If you are a person engaged in some form of practical justice work, we invite you to attend this additional day that has been prepared because we know how taxing justice work can be and we want to specifically empower and encourage you.
