The Biblical Gospel and "Doing Justice"
Led by Chris Craft, Criminal Court Judge
6:30-7:30pm, C-101
January 11, 18, 25

Recent and current events in our city and country have raised difficult questions about the application of justice and the problems of poverty, crime and hopelessness.

What does Scripture say about the teaching of Jesus regarding true justice?

Judge Craft brings to bear his experience in our justice system, while showing us how the Bible applies to these issues and the hope that is found in the gospel of Christ. Come and be challenged to think and live as a compassionate Christ-follower.

What is the place of art in the Christian life?
