Is disobedience always wrong?

For those of you not attending the Hungry for Change conference this weekend, maybe you’d be interested in learning more about what Jesus really  meant when he instructed his followers to ‘Turn the other cheek’.

Hallam Justice & Peace Commission have organised a day introducing the concept of Christian peacemaking, as modelled by Jesus. It promises to be a lively and interesting day of workshops and discussion.

Do you have to be passive to be a pacifist?

Is defiance always wrong?

What is the role of disobedience in peacemaking?

Join the debate on Saturday 10th November, 10.30am – 3.30pm, at Blessed Trinity Church, Northfield Lane, Wickersley, Rotherham, S66 2HF. Please bring lunch. More info here: Turn the other cheek flyer

Places free but please register your interest in attending by contacting Megan Lee by email: jshimmell@hallam-diocese.com or by phone: 0114 256 6464.
