Our next Mosaic Justice Network members meeting will be on Thursday June 24, from 11am to 1pm. We are looking forward* to our first face to face meeting since early 2020, and the Nazarene College in Didsbury have kindly agreed to host us, with Principal, Rev Dr Deirdre Brower-Latz as guest speaker. We will also be hearing from other members as they reflect on their experience of Covid and lockdown. For more information, please send an email.
(*subject to current Covid regulations)
The next meeting of the member of Mosaic Justice Network will be on Thursday January 14 via Zoom from 11am. Joining details will be sent out to members by email. As we begin a new year in a mixture of hope as the vaccines get rolled out, but also concern at the steep rise in infections that has put us back into lockdown, it is important that we meet to share and pray, and support each other.
If you are reading this, not a member of MJN and curious to find out more or join, please contact one of the facilitators.

Our Street Stories event planned for June 4 had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus Lockdown. Then on May 26 the brutal public killing by police officers of black man George Floyd sparked an upsurge of #BlackLivesMatter in the USA, with similar protests in the UK. We felt we should find an alternative way to discuss issues around racism and have planned 3 short Zoom events on Facing Up To Race, with the same guest speakers, plus a few more. Dates and more info here.
Here are the four presentations from our Facts and Focus' Zoom gathering, at which we looked specifically at several responses to and impacts of the Coronavirus crisis.
We have uploaded 6 new short vlogs by Mosaic members, reflecting on aspects of the impact of the Coronavirus crisis. Several were taken from a Mosaic Zoom meeting at the end of April. They are on our Covid-19 page.
On May 20, 1:30pm to 3pm, we are having a ‘Facts and Focus' Zoom gathering, looking specifically at responses to and impacts of the Coronavirus crisis. For all members, plus any others involved in social action work who might find it helpful.
