“Dare to Get to Know Your Neighbour” – Our guest speaker for Social Justice Sunday 2018 is John Deacon.
Please join us for Social Justice Sunday with John Deacon, CRC 40 Oaks Honorary Board Member and Homeless advocate, followed by conversation and a light lunch prepared by Friend’s Catering of Fred Victor Mission. Ousama al Khatib will be joining us and sharing
information about the art project for newcomers supported by Fairlawn’s Embrace Action Fund.
John is actively involved in the Toronto CRC in Regent Park as an Honorary Board member and housing advocate, as well as the on-call guitarist in one of the city’s older and invigorating churches which moved out its pews to make room for homeless people.
Here’s a link that tells you something about him:
This link illustrates exactly why I am delighted to have John speak at Social Justice Sunday. He is a genuine person who walks his talk. This is where social justice begins. For me, the advocacy and empowering are important pieces, but if they aren’t rooted in the personal relationships that we build, it is on shaky ground, in my humble opinion. This is what we are trying to do through the Embrace Action ministries at Fairlawn. Build relationships on which we can build passionate advocacy, by walking shoulder to shoulder with our neighbours.
