This year`s theme was Formation and Reformation: Worship, Justice and God's Mission. Keynote speakers and workshops explored the question of the interrelationship between justice, work, and Christian worship. To that end participants were asked to consider how worship is a catalyst for engaging in justice work and how engaging in justice work influences the shape of Christian worship.

Renison University College sponsored an exciting array of workshops, including one by Senior Fellow Joe Mancini of the Working Centre in Kitchener.
