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?

Mission:

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.
