Abstract: In 1980, the United Church of Canada embarked on an educational program to interpret the relation between Christian teaching and the search for social justice. Part of the intent of the study is to move Christians from a passive or spectator role to an active role with respect to political, economic and environmental issues.
The main resource of the Faith/Justice Focus is a Bible Study entitled "Living Between Memory and Hope" with a text by David Lockhead of the Vancouver School of Theology, and a study guide by Betty-Jean Klassen, conference minister for Program and Leadership Development in the Bay of Quinte Conference of the United Church.
