racial justice sunday 2008 

Sunday 14 September 2008 - "A banquet for all people"

Racial Justice Sunday has been observed since 1995 on the second Sunday of September and for many churches this is a very useful focus. Others, however, have asked for material that can be used at any time of the year and so, for 2008, the format changes. Resources for a special Sunday on 14th September 2008 will lead into a year of materials suitable for use in congregations, house groups, schools and other settings.

Migration is a fact of life. Increasingly, every community reflects more of the diversity of humankind. At many points in the Bible this reality is celebrated in the promise of a banquet to which all the peoples of the world are invited.

The material for 14th September takes up this wonderful theme and offers an a la carte menu for the feast - featuring biblical connections and theological themes, questions for discussion, prayers and worship suggestions, activities for young people, suggestions for community events and links to topical challenges. At God's table no one goes hungry!
