About The Justice Games
The Justice Games, written by Susy Lee (author of Raising KIDS who CARE), seeks to encourage people to care more about other people and the world around them. It consists of themed events with group experiential learning, such as simulation games,and facilitated family/small group conversations.
The games are meaningful fun – aimed at giving participants, and particularly families, a shared language and experience that helps build healthy relationships and purpose. The activities are designed so that anyone, young or old, from the Church or our broader community, can participate.
The Justice Games models collaboration over competition, empowerment over judgementalism, and fun in learning: for a purpose. It aims to build resilience in young people by giving them a worldview that says they can respond to problems in the world, rather than being overwhelmed by them, and showing them that they have a part to play.
Each event is designed to last for 2 hours (meal included) and will have similar components: all-in games; input from contemporary research, psychology and Christian theology (based on the Bible); facilitated family/small group discussion time; and take-home activities or actions.
Susy Lee’s book Raising KIDS who CARE has won numerous awards, and been endorsed by the following:
Tim Costello“This is a brilliant book”
Hugh Mackay (Psychologist)“Wise, warm, imaginative and intensely practical….this book is like a blueprint for building strong families and caring communities. Highly recommended for anyone who cares about the future of our children and our society”
Steve Biddulph (Parenting Expert)“Brightly and clearly written, with real personality, this book turns on its head our focus on making kids happy, and instead shows how to make them generators of happiness”
Jayden, 16 (Group participant) “An incredible way to exchange views and bond as a family. The conversations really helped our family to have important and meaningful conversations about our opinions and world views”.
