Just Scripture 'Showcase' sessions

About Just Scripture, and its purpose
Just Scripture connects communities, in real time across the world, to dialogue about a passage of Scripture and how it can equip or inspire them to take action on injustice.

We have been reimagining how to do Just Scripture during the exceptional times we are living in and are excited to be planning some new sessions in the near future - register your interest to join in.

The methodology
The methodology is derived from Contextual Bible Study, inspired by communities in South Africa, and Intercultural Biblical Dialogue developed in Bolivia. It has truly been forged in global partnership.

What's the purpose of Just Scripture?
Just Scripture seeks to:

  • strengthen solidarity rooted in faith, between communities across the world
  • galvanise and grow the movement of people that challenge – and change – the systems and structures that perpetuate poverty and inequality across the world
  • to amplify our collective prophetic voice

A typical session - in a global pandemic

  • A zoom link is sent for individuals to join.
  • An opening act of gathering worship or prayer.
  • Introductions in plenary or breakout rooms.
  • A chosen passage is read aloud in each language represented
  • Insights are shared together from discussion, using four or five questions
  • A commitment to action is discerned
  • A closing blessing before parting
