Conscience and Justice Council
BURLESON, TEX. – When a nation is challenged spiritually, morally, racially and economically, it signals a civilization that is in decline. The issues that confront the United States of America are very serious. Injustice and inequality can no longer endure the silence of people of faith. In showing empathy to those suffering from injustice, have we forgotten how to advocate? “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8,9.
The Conscience and Justice Council’s 2018 convention will be held Sept. 13-16, 2018 at the Houston South Marriott Hotel in Houston, to address issues that face our country. Seventh-day Adventist leaders, along with active civil leaders, will address the biblical imperative in resolving conscience and justice issues.
The convention invites pastors, elders, public affairs and religious directors, social justice ministries and those interested in conscience and justice issues. The Conscience and Justice Council encourages you to make a difference in changing our nation, one community at a time. Register at CJCouncil.org or call 1-800-328-0525.
