2014 Lenten Study - Choose Justice

This year you will have the opportunity to study and discuss the DVD, Choose Justice, featuring Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne which affirms that, with Christ, we can participate in building a better world through the many choices we make every day. Choosing justice on a daily basis - at the mall, at the table, inour celebrations - will change our lives, the lives of those around us, and the lives of people we may never meet. Explore Choose Justice, and be challenged to make real and lasting changes for living justly in your world.

The study begins the first week of Lent and will meet for six sessions. Feel free to join any class at any time. Questions? Contact Heather Nowak at 248-541-4100 ext. 1313 or hnowak@rofum.org.
