The Graduate Christian Fellowship invites you to:
“Who Is My Neighbour?”
Exploring the connections between elite education, urban poverty, and Christian faith
An interactive discussion and Bible study
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Chaplain’s office, Wycliffe College (basement)
6:00 – Dinner
7:00 (or so) – Something After Dinner – discussion, etc.
Who is my neighbour? Who are my brothers and sisters? This Thursday the GCF community expands the conversation on how we can live faithfully to include an exploration of how we can be sensitive and responsive to the plight of the poor in our city. As Christians, what is our role in caring for the poor? As members of an educated class, attached to elite institutions, what is our role? As neighbours living and working in the midst of the poor on our doorsteps, what is our role in responding to the reality and crisis of poverty?
Join us for an interactive discussion and Bible study exploring these questions and dilemmas. Come learn about some Christian ministries in our city who are working to alleviate the burdens on the poor in our midst. Be part of a safe environment to explore the nuances and complexities around our Christian responsibility and call to serve the poor.
All are welcome, brothers and sisters!
