EVENT: RJ Mural Community Project

St. John’s Mural Project based on the theme of racial justice and Micah 6:8:

He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?


Over the summer, the racial justice, healing, and reconciliation team wrestled with creating inclusive and intentional platforms for racial justice within and outside of the church. As a group, we would like to invite the congregation to participate in creating a collaborative mural. In doing so, each participant will create an oil paint image of their understanding of justice. The mural’s theme is Micah 6:8, which reminds believers of justice’s theological and ethical importance. Micah 6:8 reads to “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.””

What does Micah 6:8 mean to you? Rather than just talking about it, we invite you into a contemplative and artistic response by displaying your thoughts through words, images, or symbols.

Tips: Please do not worry about whether or not your canvas will align with others. This mural is fueled by creativity to illustrate diverse interpretations of Micah 6:8.
