Justice Seekers - Bi-Monthly

A Three Point Theology of Advocacy 

If you're receiving this email you're probably interested in politics, maybe you’ve been told that you need to keep politics separate from your Christian identity.  However, there is a strong case to be made that advocacy is a spiritual discipline that God has instilled in you a passion for.  

The next time someone engages you in this conversation be prepared to enter into a deeper conversation with Mike’s three point theology of advocacy!  

In Justice and Hope,

The Centre for Public Dialogue Team

Human Trafficking Awareness Day
