For Such a Time as This! Worship meets justice and the arts in turbulent times

ICS' Centre for Philosophy Religion and Social Ethics is sponsoring this one-day workshop on October 21, 2017 at First Christian Reformed Church in Toronto. The workshop will explore creative ways in which the arts can be integrated into worship settings so that Christians can be inspired by the Gospel's call to pursue justice. The day will include a live performance of the play Just Faith? by students from Toronto District Christian High School!
