Diocese of Hallam Justice and Peace Commission invites you to our Autumn Event!

Justice as Hospitality

– being a neighbour to the oppressed and afflicted

The notion of ‘hospitality’ is a theme common to all the Abrahamic religious traditions. It offers a better way of understanding space and its ownership than the secularist idea of a ‘neutral’ space which belongs to no-one and therefore has to be fought over or defended. The many biblical images of hospitality, and the implications for contemporary Justice and Peace issues, such as asylum-seekers, refugees, immigrants, poverty and debt, are very clear. We will look at how we can deepen our understanding of hospitality so as to make our work for justice more effective.

led by Dr Michael Kirwan, S.J.
