Faith and Justice zoom meetings are designed for college-age students and young adults in North America who are interested in learning more about restorative justice themes and practices within a faith-based context. Anyone is welcome to attend, and the meetings function like a revolving door with both new and repeated content.

What can you expect from a meeting?
Each hour will typically include a welcome / intro time, a short presentation on a restorative justice topic, a biblical passage or story that illuminates restorative justice, time for questions and discussion, a breakout exercise for small group discussion, a closing time for final reflections. Now and then the topic will broaden out into the fields of conflict resolution and healthy communications.
All meetings are facilitated by Ted Lewis and are assisted by student leaders from Calvin Peacemakers at Calvin University, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Students from other colleges and universities are welcome to attend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the zoom link.
Ted can also arrange special meetings with school groups that request a session or workshop on restorative justice presented in a faith-based context. Discussion and interactive learning are included.
