The Isaiah Community meets every Tuesday at 6pm in St. John’s at Waterloo and is a group of people who are “mainly but not only Christian, committed to working for a juster, fairer society”. See more under the who we are section of their website.
This spring and summer they are hosting a series of talks under the title ‘Just Good Friends?’:
“What links friendship, justice and spirituality? Can we have one without the others? How do we respond to global challenges in a local world? What good is prayer? You’re invited to a series of reflections at the Isaiah Community in April and May.”
Despite the slight ambiguity of the title, the contributers and the subject matter for some of the talks look very interesting. Note the discussion this evening on Prisons. If anyone has attended any of the sessions so far, or has anything to add about this series please feel free to comment below.
The talk will start at 6pm in St John’s Waterloo
